    I completely agree. I have always been a huge fan of Aero since Vista came out. Windows 7 just made it look even better. I got Windows 8 on my laptop, but I will not be getting it on my desktop any time soon. It is my primary system and unless I can reproduce the look and feel that I love, I will not be upgrading.

    I will not have some fascist come on here and start telling me that my opinion doesn't matter and that my choice doesn't matter and telling me to just flat out 'deal with it' as if it's not even a problem. It is a problem to me, a big problem, so they can just buzz off. Even for my laptop's sake, I will continue to find a way things back that were taken from me in the upgrade.

    MS would have gotten much better sales, and much better reviews, and a much better opinion out of a lot more users if they simply kept the choices in, and it would not have hurt them to do so. For Windows 8 (not RT), having 'transparency/blur' checkbox and/or an Aero theme in the personalize panel would have been JUST FINE and would have pleased us all. ALL of us. Third party solutions already returned the start orb, so what I want back is my eye candy.

    As it was my choice to replace the Start button, Quick-Launch
    toolbar and desktop gadgets.

    Why is there such an issue about giving people CHOICE?
    Sadly because we live in a world now where people gladly take anything that's wrapped up and given to them without question. And they'll defend the giver for two reasons, they either thrive on always disagreeing - even disagreeing with logic, or they are getting paid for their opinion. M$ doesn't even have to give a reason for taking away your choices, they have plenty of sheep out there doing it for them for free.

    Redundant?! Give me a break with that crap!
    This is also a desktop OS and there should be an option, like it always was!!

    It's my PC, I want OS to look and feel my way!!

    So now you see? Moaning does nothing. Aero is gone. Permanently. Have all the hissy fits you want. Its not coming back.
    That's ridiculous. And the answer to that is simple - I like Aero and that's why I'm running Windows 7 most of the time. I have Windows 8 installed as a secondary OS and I play with it when I have time, but it looks plain ugly and I don't care for tablets. That's why I work with Windows 7.

    Where is our choice? At least give me the Release Preview aero, Microsoft.

    You, sir, are exactly right.

    Personally I loved Aero. I don't really care about the streaks, but I think the transparency really added to the look. These flat, solid colors are ugly. Oddly enough I noticed that Aero Peak is still there, but the button the button is invisible. Just point at the far right side of the task bar and it works just like it used to. Click that empty space and everything is even minimized, just as before.

    I have been using win8 as my main OS since the RP was released.
    I jumped from RP to RTM pro a few days ago, I am disappointed in the UI changes. RP looked better overall.
    I don't miss Aero at all, it kind of looks childish now.

    The up/back/forward buttons in "file explorer" look like hell. (what was wrong with the "windows explorer" name?)
    Whose idea was it to remove the option of solid color or transparency from the window borders?
    Seriously Microsoft, fire that guy(s) who had that idea.
