    Yes I can.
    well I guess thats my opinion then!
    After seeing them cut Aero, I would too. Vista has enough software compatibility and stability that the new features in 8 aren't that great. I'm more worried about the eye candy that I'll be seeing a lot rather than a few seconds on boot, etc., which I won't.

    The eye-candy isn't one of my biggest issues. I thought aero looked rather cheesy with the rounded corners and authentically "cheap" transparency. I liked the CP's look until the RTM came and killed RP and CP.

    It's all in what you prefer. What one person thinks looks "cheesy", another person likes. I think what is really annoying here is that you have no choice to either have it on or off....people like choice and are used to having it with Windows.

    I personally never really noticed the rounded corners before..so they never stood out to me. As far as tranparency goes, I never liked it and always shut it off. But I do like the gradients and shading in my title bar area of windows and i just find that that the super blocky, consistent color nature of Windows 8/Srv2012 is just too stark, in my face and not appealing to me.

    I know you cannot make everybody happy, but having a choice as to whether you wanted to continue to use what they sold us on during the past 2 versions of Windows doesn't seem too much to ask or expect.

    To me, it seems like MS is becoming more Apple like in their nature and saying, "It's the way it is, you have a choice of 1 or 1".

    Doesn't make sense to me. They had Aero in the CP then removed it in RTM. As was said earlier, why not just leave it in and let user's turn it on and off? What's next, CGA mode?

    Not on my systems.

    Next is OS X - what you get, this is it. No tweaks, no adjustments.
    Eventually, you might change desktop background and some icons.

    Well, we are witnesses that it's exactly what's happening.

    There is always someone from MS reading. The only question is: do they care?

    They must. But MS does want to "move forward" with these "tablets". Maybe RT should stay with tablets, while 8 should have aero and other PC and laptop options.
