To me it seems like a brilliant interface for an ebook reader.

I hate all the flat, boring looking shit. Calling it "modern" is bullshit, it's just making Windows look dumbed-down. Aero is sexy in Win 8 Dev preview. Deal with it.
Aero makes sense for the name. Windows. Glass.

The design philosophy of content over chrome is ingenious and, since seeing and using metro, old, bulky, chrome and plastic looking stuff just looks busy and ugly.

With a high resolution, just seeing fucking thousands of tiles makes it really hard to organize them well. There should be some way of scaling it without affecting the resolution.

Steam wallet needs to be aligned to where the inbox is, part from that it looks neato

I really hope they fix all the dual screening stuff. I want to be able to use metro stuff on both screens at a time and using all the corner shortcuts while DSing is frustrating as fuck.
I wonder if Valve would consider making a Metro version of steam.
[QUOTE=bassie12;35755575]I wonder if Valve would consider making a Metro version of steam.[/QUOTE] I was making something like it with Opensteamworks for my tablet since steam doesn't have touch controls in Windows 8, but then I can't access the Steam API DLL from a metro app, or at least I don't know how to since things are sandboxed

While I think this would be cool, I don't think there is too much touch friendly games on steam for it to work. Besides, most are gonna either use XBL or the windows store alone so
[QUOTE=inconspicious;35724109]late, but its a very nice idea for a desktop interface. [url]http://www.theverge.com/2012/2/24/2822891/windows-desktop-ui-concept[/url] [t]http://img198.imageshack.us/img198/9029/desktopoy.jpg[/t][/QUOTE] This looks like Zune Marketplace had sex with Ubuntu.

If Windows would design something that looks like GNOME 2 / KDE desktop environment and then implement it into Windows 8, then I'd never remove it. But yeah, these are just dreams on windows...without any tweaks. *barfs*
sometimes if I'm using the music app, the music volume lowers a bit if I'm going back to desk, sometimes it doesn't. Is there a specific reason for that?
[QUOTE=Techbot;35783514]sometimes if I'm using the music app, the music volume lowers a bit if I'm going back to desk, sometimes it doesn't. Is there a specific reason for that?[/QUOTE] Shouldn't be, just file a bug report.
so if I download win8 what happens when its fully released? does it stop working, can I add a key to it? I wanna give win8 a chance but im pretty in the dark on how it all works
You can use it till January.

You can't roll back without having to do a fresh install. If you don't want to take that risk, install to a different partition (dual boot) or install to a VM. Personally, I installed it to a VM using VMWare Player, but that might not work so well if you're testing touch-screen.
Is it me or is the OP image a thumbnail?
[QUOTE=Panda X;35810789]Is it me or is the OP image a thumbnail?[/QUOTE] Yup, it has been thumbed.
Why?
That's awful. [QUOTE=Zedicus Mann;35811001]Why?[/QUOTE] I suspect it might be some new forum code that automatically thumbs large images.
[QUOTE=ali3n92;35811006]That's awful. I suspect it might be some new forum code that automatically thumbs large images.[/QUOTE] The image itself is a thumbnail for some reason, the code is fine. I'll ask Jimmy if he has the original.
