When I had the release preview installed windows 8 had transparent window frames, but now I after I bought the upgrade there are no more transparent windows. Am I missing something or what ? :)

Thanks for reading!

yeah, they dropped the glass effect last minute shortly after the Release Preview (RC) was released

so no, you're not missing anything, there is no glass effect in the final version of Windows 8
