    General discussion

  • There is the way too much difference between Metro and Aero. Can we expect something like this ?

    Pretty sure that Microsoft is happy with Metro as is.

  • I think the two UIs do need some visual relationship, at the moment the skip between the two is jarring. I highly doubt that such a thing could be implemented before release though, this would be a major undertaking.

  • Please, Windows team, make some kind of change similar to what vfx2be proposed. A big part of what makes an OS attractive today is aesthetics. The shocking contrast between Metro and Aero offends the eye. Both Transparency and rounded border give the Desktop an outdated look. Thanks.
