    And the same shot in the Win 8 RTM.

    No comparison, really. I want my transparency back.....

    But in general, it works: you get the window borders back.
    The transparency is hidden somewhere else, Aero just runs what it has to run.
    We all know that ''Aero'' became the term for transparency effects. Therefore, do not make fools of each other!

    And as for the modder, it's old news and, as it seems, it's a fake.

    Windows 8 IS NOT Windows 7.
    I can live without Start Menu, all I want is transparency and that I don't have to pay to Stardock or whoever for it.

    As for me, I would be happy if everything was left like this:

    Try this:

    CustomXP - Télécharger : Logiciels

    The site is in French but just click the "Telecharger" button to download True Transparency. Not the cleanest since it's not W8 specific but it does make the borders transparent. Right click the system tray icon to select different skins. I'm not into the transparent border stuff but was curious if it actually worked.

    On a random tangent, I was thinking one time on how absolutely cool it would look to expand transparency to the point where a lot of the UI and windows are transparent, but still able to view the items within the window. And to detail it all off, include in true metro iconography, like Windows Phone metro style. Have the Segoe font dominate and large throughout. The windows will have a one pixel color outline, along with some non-transparent UI items. The iconography and some UI elements will be able to change colors to what the user wants. A neat mesh of Aero transparency (Windows 8 style transpancy) and metro form.

    Aero could be balanced with the new desktop UI renovations easily, but on a tablet it would almost be slow, (Windows RT). Windows 8 should be plenty different than Windows RT, and give you quite a few more options.

    I definitely love aero. But I also love the way W8's RTM looks. So - no problems for me

    I had somebody stop by today and they were looking over my shoulder while I worked on a server 2012 box and they suggested that I load a video driver to try to make my colors and such look a lot better.

    I thought it was funny. I told them this was the way it looked, and that Windows 8 was going to look the same way. They honestly didn't believe me.

    As I do, they thought it looked like crap. Yes, welcome to the future.

    Yes I can.
