I preferred the window borders when there was just a single pixel of colour as seen with office 2013. Hope that stays as an option.

Is that taskbar even chunkier than the full sized windows 7 taskbar?

I'm not a huge fan of the baby blue window borders but colour scheme on the file history window looks great.

Why is everything going flatter? That seems so 80's. I want a UI with bevels and 3d elements not some ugly flat monstrosity.

I dunno about the Office 2013 window borders but the ones in the screenshots are the same as they are on Windows 7 as far as thickness, doesn't look like they change it at all. The only difference is that now because it's not glass and it has more color they stand out more.

The taskbar looks the same to me as well, at best it might be a few pixels taller to make hitting the systrey icons with a finger easier but that's just a guess.

Didn't Microsoft already say that the white one would be the default theme?

The screenshot was taken at a higher DPI, so it's 25% larger than the standard size. The default taskbar - as far as we know - will remain the same size.

Yeah they bumped up the taskbar metrics it looks like (temporarily or permanently I don't know), the result of which is the increase of the icon sizes and the font size from 9pt to (it looks like) 11 pt in this shot.

Loving it! The new taskbar looks so clean! And yes, I agree that they should do away with the borders as well and adopt Office 2013's style.
