Windows Paul Thurrot and Rafael Rivera have some good shots of the new theme for classic applications in windows 8. Looking pretty good - too bad Microsoft didn't come up with a new icon set as well. Still, white window borders with a white taskbar and these new widgets and flat appearance... Nice.

Here is why they are ruining the Desktop

Letting a user see an Aero desktop right next to a Metro desktop would make Metro look too stark and bland. So, It seems the whole point of these new designs is to cause people to not want to be in Classic Desktop. This would 1. Cause people to demand more Metro apps 2. MS can say they are removing it due to public dislike.
