Windows "The new changes include several new lock-screen images, the Windows Store tile is now green, and the small magnifying glass in the bottom right corner when you scroll has changed to a simple square. While nothing major, they are representative of the across-the-board tweaks we expect to see when the Release Preview hits the digital shelves in June." So, nothing to address the core issues with Windows 8's mouse/keyboard-hostile environment. Sad.

"the Windows Store tile is now green"

Am I the only one that finds the array of random colours annoying?
I like my WP7 device, but there are apps I won't pin to the homescreen because they have a tile colour that doesn't conform to my setting. In Windows 8 it's considerably worse, and I find myself wishing that I could define a tile colour per-grouping.
I did some exploring in the consumer preview and found the xml file where this is defined, but if you change it then windows determines the app to be corrupt and re-downloads it from the marketplace.
