Judging from the screensaver icon on bottom right seems like the vista-7 icons are still there and they havent updated Windows Explorer etc with new metro icons. :(

This is Windows "re-imagined", except for the icons which are still shiny and 3D looking... :/

At this point there is no way they are replacing all icons with new ones. Work on Windows 8 will apparently finish soon so let's hope the icons are changed come Windows 9.

I think that if Microsoft didn't want to create new icons they could have updated the icons that are still the same ones used in Vista. In Windows 7 many Vista icons were updated (like the control panel, windows explorer, calculator and wordpad icons, to name a few). Those do not look that bad in Windows 8 because they don't have the shininess and 3D look that the other icons have.

Great to hear that :)
Can't wait to see if they prepared anything new in the RTM build.
