Thank God they removed the start orb. Duplication is what i hate about MS UI. now they need to kill duplicate commands in WE.

Talk about completely killing muscle memory, jeeze. That taskbar looks incomplete without a start button.

I think it's a legit build, reason being is the start menu has been completely removed now, but you never know.

Still nothing released in the wild yet..

Here's hoping, it does appear to be, but then the start button would be too far away from the first pinned program for that to be right

It's because if you place the mouse on the taskbar left side(where the start orb was), there's a "start screen thumbnail"(that's how the OEM guys described) appearing - that's why a space is reserved for that. Unfortunately no pic of this thing is available as of now.

btw, setup.exe from canouna:

A MS China employee had posted about "some new features in the win8 beta interface" back in Dec. (12/13), I posted it in MDL but at that early time, seems people was not too interested.

Now the beta is coming, maybe you guys would be interested in what he said back then:

http://bbs.pcbeta.co...951082-1-1.html

screen815.jpg

I modified the Bing translate so it would be more understandable:

1.17 years of the start button officially retired, replaced by moving the mouse to the "start area"; there will be a preview(thumnail) of the start screen. (**LOL, now people can really say good-bye to the win7 start menu, and also all the WDP registry treaks.)

2. Charms from the right side of the screen rather than the left start. (**move mouse to either top-right or bottom-right.)

3 applications can be dragged from the top of the screen to the side of the screen and dock.

4 Close the application's functionality: Pulled the program from the top down to the bottom of the screen to shut-down. (**canouna had shown this new function)

5 multiple-choice starting screen support.

6 Start screen thumbnail view.

7. Push scrolling: move mouse to the edge of the screen then you can start scrolling start screen, without the need to use the bottom scroll bar.

8. "All Apps View": inside the Suites, Office, Adobe, etc. will be automatically assigned to a group.

9 start screen to be more easily re-arrange Tiles. Tiles can be pulled to the bottom or top of the screen, start menu will automatically become a thumbnail view to facilitate the release of Tile. When the mobile Tiles will be displayed more clear instructions to tell the user the effect of reorganization.

10 updated the application-switch animation, Charms start button animation.

11 an application dragged from the left of the screen can always move back to shutdown or switch into the next program, or use mouse scroll wheel to switch.

12 Wide Tiles can be reduced to a narrow range in order to increase the screen space.

13 high-resolution displays can control the number of apps to appear in the start-screen .

14 new Apps are fun. Everyone's doing very fine App, which zoom into contact support thumbnail view, also supports Docked mode following the chat side of the screen, very useful.(**I don't actually understand how it works, maybe canouna can tell us better)

Sorry, just returned from China.....

I am not sure, maybe wait until we get more pics/infos from these guys and canouna(that's what he promised, more info on winunleaked).

btw, he posted something here, in case you haven't noticed:

Exactly, this metro thing would actually have a shot of being nice if it didn't look like someone crapped all over the screen and put random **** in random places.

MDL breaks my brain. I get that there's mixed nationalities posting there, but their English is so ****ing bad...

Also, I hope you can choose which border the charms are supposed to show up. My current multimonitor setup doesn't really mesh with right hand side. Primary display's on the left, it'd result in high precision aiming.

I hope they let you switch sides too, I'm in the same boat with multiple monitors.
