    I also had another layout, with the lies inverted. It was quite nice too.

    Well, I love this forum, and Im glad to be here. I have to do a fresh install of Win8 AGAIN...and I'm gonna have to do all the little hacks all over again :'(

    Very impressive!

    Welcome to EightForums, deeprana94.

    Your Start Screen looks great! :thumbup: Your screen may be long, but so are railroad tracks.

    Clean. Tiles to the right and transparent.

    It would be great to be able to do this on my Windows Phone 8 as well.

    Some day..... MS needs this to take all the tile complaints away.

    This is absolutely the first start screen that is actually decent to look at. Congratulations, it's too bad that this isn't the sort of interface that was provided by MS in the first place.
    Ummm.....this basically was provided by Microsoft. It takes user input and third party to deliver what they personally want. I think this is cool, but I wouldn't use it as it reminds me of mac os and such.
    exactly - moreover if w8 looked like the screenshots out of the box i would have stuck with xp, to each their own i suppose. as far as the notion that w8's metro gui was inspired by aol, well that's just laughable.
