Bring back windows 7 aero

    General discussion

  • I think that for the desktop the "new" aero doesn't look as nice as the windows 7 version. Its too square and does not have the pretty "glass" effect. I know this is only a DP and does not pertain to metro, but I think it should be done. Windows 7 aero was/is the king of a beautiful desktop UI.

  • I actually love the new design!

  • Ok, so now that there is conflicting views on this... make it an option for either or. 😏 I guess I just assumed that everyone liked W7 one more... so like I said make it an option to bring it back.

  • Yeah I can see it work as an option - kind of like the old windows themes still being supported.
    But like I said, "No dispute about taste" (it's the translation of the latin phrase, roughly).

  • +1. It's a matter of taste. I especially liked the caption buttons in Aero which glowed when hovered. The new style doesn't glow them. Please keep both styles available. Not so hard to give an option is it?

  • True :)

  • I actually like the Windows 8 Aero UI a little better.  Definitely would be cool to see the Windows 7 Aero UI as an option though.
