    I miss Aero feature, it's dull and boring in Win8.

    Give me the speed and stability of the RTM, but with CP-style Aero, and I'd be perfectly happy.

    The Start Screen isn't an issue, as, with Classic-Shell installed, I can use or avoid the Start Screen at will.

    I find that I'm using BOTH, at present......

    I personally have set, through third party, my window color white while I have a blue Taskbar and blue Start Screen. I find the white window coloring on the Desktop to be, like a crisp pleat on a new pair of dress pants.

    Aero is still there, its transparency and blur which are gone.

    "Windows Aero is a set of interface and design guidelines"

    Features that were based on Aero(such as aero peek) still survive, but aero is dead.

    Yes, but it is VERY minimal.

    And doesn't appear anywhere else.

    Seriously, my WFW 3.11 setup doesn't look this plain.
