    I chose not to stray to far from what has leaked from the Technical Preview builds. I just attempted to make a little more sense of things and clean it up a tad.


    Start Menu
    All desktop applications receive updated "modern" icons, but will feature a "Desktop" indicator/logo in the upper right corner of the tiled icon to distinguish it from a modern app. Cortana dynamically updates within the taskbar with upcoming reminders.

    Notification Center + Cortana
    The Windows Notification Center spans across the bottom of the screen to reveal notifications for the PC and connected Windows smartphones. Additionally, it features the Cortana digital assistant.

    I definitely would prefer a less obtrusive notification centre. Having the notifications take over 1/3 of my screen would not be something I'd like. That would be an annoyance to me, since it would interfere with whatever I'm doing.

    Thanks for the feedback. I designed it this way as it would be something that only displays when you click the notification center icon. You would have some kind of indicator on the notification icon informing you that new notifications are available, versus an annoying pop up every now there's another event.

    I could live with it as long as the notifications were unobtrusive and could be easily disabled. For instance, I wouldn't want any notifications at all I were watching Netflix or playing a game.
