Windows 8 Desktop Theme Concept by potasiyam Windows 8 Desktop Theme Concept by potasiyam
The desktop theme of Windows 8 looks ugly as they removed aero. ([link])
I redesigned the desktop keeping aero and start button for start screen and adding ribbon from office 2013.
Now this is the result.

If you want to reuse contact me please.

I really dislike that they removed Aero Glass, although I understand why they did it.

I really like this concept. It always amazes me how the best themes or concepts come from the deviant community, and yet Microsoft seem utterly clueless when it comes to making themes for their operating systems. I think they should hire better people.

Definitely MS should hire better designers. Some parts of the designs of 8 is unexpectedly ugly (not talking about metro apps). I am definitely looking for 3rd party themes when they are out. If I have enough time I will a theme out of this concept.

Either that, or they should do some kind of community contest - let the users submit their concepts and people vote (I wish dA had a edit button for posts).

The removing of aero was a good idea its uses way 2 much resources, look at mac and linux both don't these this by default as its just a darn toy not needed, tho its a nice concept but aero as been over kill.

Agree, aero takes resources. But still the default theme is ugly. I didn't expect this from a RTM version.

Yes I agree there, I think MS really should offer a better means for users to custom there themes to where we want the items to go, a true custom themed OS :)
