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.

Yea that is actually easier on the eyes.

Maybe Windows 9 will have a retro look after Sinofsky decides that eye-bleeding high contrast themes are no longer 'modern'. Maybe he will decide that 'modernism' is a rotating anus in the background (that can't be removed). Just kidding, Sinofsky will be gone after this piece of crap falls.

Vain/trend-obsessed thinkers like him have no sense of timeless design. I've never heard anyone suggest tearing down the Neuschwanstein Castle because it doesn't fit some idiot's definition of modernism. The guy in charge of Windows is like a 16 year old girl with clothes. Actually I take that back, a 16 year old girl has better taste. I would much rather have a random 16 year old girl in charge of Windows right now.
