not impressed...

Not enough changes in Aero. . . Lacks a lot of polish (I say this because even the RTM Aero of Windows 7 lacked polish)

I like the dark gray look in that screenshot. Wonder if there are other changes on the start screen side as well.

You can polish a turd all day long. But at the end of the day it's still a turd. :laugh:

Sarcasm?



I'm still disappointed to see two Control Panels in Windows 8. Everything should be ripped out of the code and moved to the Metro CP. Since the CP in Windows is a mess of epic proportions, that might be harder to do.

idk to me its much nicer and matches well with Metro design. Also its less distracting and soft. And what more can we expect ? Aero Diamond?

Here's a higher res pic :

People are already crying to not to fiddle with normal desktop mode so that they can avoid metro completely , doing that would not be nice , at least for Windows 8. How weird it would be to switch from normal desktop to control panel in metro every now and then , techie ppl won't like that...

I like two CPs. I mean I couldn't justify it having two.
Like why uninstall desktop apps on the metro side and everything, and also when you change the theme you want to see the wallpaper or colour changing. Pointless having to try every new aero colour and swapping back and forth to see what it looks like.

I'm just waiting for new icons (as in Windows Explorer/Recycle Bin etc) and new sounds.

I honestly can't believe that a company of such size of MS can produce such utter cr$p (N). where are their proper UI designers ? , where is the flow ? , the integration ? ...... it's like MS will never learn from their mistakes, because i'm sorry but the changes to the 'new' aero revision looks like a retard designed it :/

We already had this conversion on the forum, and you are wrong/out of your mind.

The metro dogma must have destroyed designers within MS. I cannot believe MS is risking their company on such poor UX.

Agreed. I particularly don't like that the titlebars are obscenely large and not customizable.
