Currently, you can't. It was removed from Windows 8. It's likely a third party will introduce a theme with transparency, however.. so be patient.

Because now this year what one was the pinnacle of cool is now cheesy and so last year.

I too am waiting for some nice graphic updates,as Windows 8 to me seems like a big step backwards and so plain and boring now. On one hand, they throw colours and shapes in our face with the new start screen, but then make everything else square, dull, boring shades of grey...very similar to what Apple did about 8 years ago.

I think we're going to see a lot of gradient like themes, very similar to OSX and personally I think that is a better way to go and even if aero comes back but with a cleaner transparency than that's great.

but I'd like to see themes similar to GTK or KDE's QT themes.
take a look here, this is more likely the type of themes we'll see with 8.
