Windows 8, Goodbye Aero
Microsoft have revealed that the latest edition of Windows will not come with the Aero Glass feature which was first introduced in Vista a few years back.
Although Aero was still in the Windows 8 Consumer Preview, Microsoft have confirmed in a Building Windows blog update that Aero will no longer be making an appearance. Instead the different bars will match the flattened Metro style.
I’m interested to hear your thoughts. A while back I posted an article on why I won’t be purchasing Windows 8, and part of the reason was that the main desktop looked exactly the same except for the (in my opinion) annoying Metro UI. Maybe by removing the Aero Glass style they have made the jump more towards Metro.
