    to the vast majority of users they won't really care that much though, and to the rest; once they learn how to actually use their computer, they can shape it to the way they want.
    Yes, I know about that but what I meant to say is that there should be a choice to enable Aero in the future release of Windows 8 for those of us who love the transparent design.
    And where, pray tell, should microsoft put this choice?

    It's the metro theme, and the Desktop is finally getting rid of the design clash. Sure, it's nice to look at, but in the grand scheme of things, it's awkward for it to be there.
