I think the best bet for Windows 8 should be a built in Customization not just for colour, but also for things like syle. Similar more to Linux Distros.
More customization = better.

~Lordbob

That's what I was hoping for with 7. Didn't happen.

It won't happen with 8 either.

Just like Apple, they have to have easy brand recognition.

Apart from 'un-official' theming, customization will always be limited :(

I really hope that Eight comes with a style that is minimalistic but not drab, kind of like the look in OS X.

That is basically what I have been thinking of for the new Windows GUI. Something clean, albeit effective. You are on the right track.
