    Hello from a new Guy...is the new GUI in the Release Preview?


    Hello All,

    I'm new.

    For those that have the Release Candidate, does it include the new Metroized menus and font's? I'm psyched and am looking forward to the release.

    TIA

    Correction to my previous post, it now looks like it is being released to technet/msdn (the first time likely to get any real reports from anyone here) on Aug 15th, not today

    Yes, I am afraid so.

    Most are hoping that in RTM, you will at least be able to turn it off.
