    Hi Alan, the tiles are not transparent, I used OblyTile and photoshop CS6 to re-create each tile one by one to match with the background. It would be nice to have a software to get transparent tiles, don't know if it exists ....

    I believe a freeware app called Modern UI Start Screen gives you the option to make the Start Screen background transparent as well as the tiles. It's pretty cool!

    Sadly, this is the best customization Windows Server 2012 has to offer without using 3rd party programs

    I wouldn't imagine Windows Server is meant to be UI customized in that fashion...

    I know, but at least Microsoft offers the "core" only version for IT managers who hate the new Start screen on their servers.
