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.

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


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.

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

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.
