More Windows 8 RTM Screen shots!

Sigh~

You really have too much spare time and use it to generalize every single Windows user, just like Microsoft is doing right now.

To be fair, he was very close to the mark to be honest!

Going by the fifth screenshot on the link, are they going to give you the option to go straight to the desktop after all? ;)

Excellent point! I just looked at the window borders, never even thought to look at the text :D

Well spotted. I was so busy looking at the UI I ignored the text but that should satisfy a lot of the "I'm a poweruser" complaints.

Nope... If you follow the winsupersite link under the screenshot you mentioned that's a Stardock Start8 dialog.

Well there you go ... burst my bubble :( ... thought I was first to notice a change in Windows 8!

Sorry guys.

My initial reaction: haha

It looks so ridiculous with all the white washing out everything and the silly blue borders. This is the most hilarious version of windows yet.

Transparency overkill in my opinion, no thanks. I hate the idea of text in a windows/dialog box that's so transparent that it gets lost in the wallpaper or another window under it. That just makes my eyes bleed.

Well, once you hover over it you get full opacity, and again, I like a lot my backgrounds, your opinion is just that, an opinion, don't generalize FFS.

I think your desktop looks really cool (Y)

Who's generalizing exactly? Because I sure as hell am not.

How did this thread go from screenshots of Windows 8 to screenshots of Windows 7 Anime Edition? lol

Really, really am digging this new UI. I personally think it looks amazing.

For the love of Christ, what have they done :( :no:

Made it better, it seems, and given those who dislike the Metro experience an option for the Desktop to be shown instead of the Start Screen whenever they login :)

If you guys don't like the white, or w/e then there will be themes to download and use, there have always been themes, this isn't going to change. I don't much care for it being too white as well, a darker theme is more to my liking but if that's not an option then I'll find a theme that matches what I want.

The 'do you want to boot to the desktop' dialogue box is from Start8, not Windows 8 RTM. Check the WinSupersite link below the screenshot.

We have. The only similarity between the two screenshots is that they both contain the colour white. None of the UI elements are the same.

Ah, thank you for pointing that out to me :) I should have looked further, before posting.

Would you prefer more white or grey? :p Heh, I'm kidding. I don't think the close button looks particularly nice. I'm not sure whether I'm a fan of how this new Desktop design looks, but I do prefer it to the design of Windows 7.

Thanks mate.

Some others, for the sake of what windows will miss with all this "metrification" going on, please disregard the backgrounds, I'm a huge Suigintou fan, please note the themes, they are everything but what Dot Matrix have put. (Even win98 is in there... because even windows 98 doesn't hurt my eyes as metro does, plus has start menu)

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

I would agree. Too much blue. A little lighter shade of blue would have looked nicer.

That's everything i got really, they are a compilation of several screenshots taken randomly since I think 2008, when theming was quite good. I promise I won't post anything else.
