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.

you guys have the brainpower to create your own "desktop environment" one would believe.
Then, why so dependent on these corporate rats?

I found my "nerdvana" using:
OS - linux
vim - texteditor
rxvt-unicode - terminal emulator
awesomewm - window manager
dvorak for keyboard layout
bash terminal - filemanager
etc etc

stable as a rock, free, and extremely powerful.

I can use same setup on a new i7 or on a old 900 celeron laptop. ;) I just transfer my conf files between installs, and I got the same awesome setup wherevere i need.

Simple: the software I use does not run at all or does only run with issues under Linux. Or any of the other OSes.
