Feature Request / Concern: Metro customizability

    General discussion

  • This is a voicing of a concern that I have had since I first looked at Metro as a component of Windows Phone 7, and now Windows 8.  What kind of customizability are we going to see in this layout?  Will we be able to change colors and add a background picture?  What about skinning and themes?  The ability to rearrange icons and download apps is not customization.  That's like giving 10 people identical houses and identical furniture and the only customization they get is where they put it.  In the last few years, Microsoft has pushed this with the "You Make It You" slogan tied to the Zune, and followed that with Windows 7.  What ability am I going to have to make Windows 8, well, me?
