    I am very interested in this thread.

    I would like to change the color of my Metro to black. I am fine with the patterns, but I would really love to see my Metro in black, which MS seem to have left out of the color selection.

    Black background with red tiles like I had it with the Consumer Preview!

    I knew some software authorized from Microsoft used by my friend, it can edit almost anything in 8, but forgot the name, will recollect it...

    I remember taking this picture for some odd reason because I had my Nokia Lumia 900 sitting right next to this laptop I was using with the Windows 8 To Go, with the Consumer Preview. My Lumia was on the Start Screen with red tiles and I just sat there, looking at the two and thinking, "Wow, this is pretty." And, "Wow, this is the start of the next big thing."

    I want them red tiles and black background.

    You mean this doesn't work in the RTM?

    I've tried all the hack tools for the Start Screen in the RTM and Release Preview, nothing works. Hence, this is why some of us want to change it.
