    I'm tired of these concepts that show way too much transparency and unused real estate.

    Firstly, it is exactly what you described it, you can't remove the app but it can be updated. It is a system app. What I really hope is that they make their Xbox apps the same on all platforms and share code between them (universal apps). It's about time almost all system apps on windows and windows phone became universal. Why does windows have a stopwatch app built in but windows phone doesn't? Why is the WP Mail app lifeless in comparison to the windows Mail app. Just my opinion again.

    I agree with you on this. I hope they make all system apps universal. But I find this likely anyway. So I'm good

    They need to make the larger tiles interactive and widget-like by option. Wouldn't it be cool if the large xbox music icon could also be an on screen mini-player with an album cover on display as well? I think they should also bring extra large icons to the phone part like the pc has, for widget-like purposes.

    But for the start screen all they really need to do is to make tiles cover the screen edge to edge (perhaps leaving just enough of space for the status bar).
    Even i was thinking the same. Too much margin makes the tiles looks like icons. :/

    I think tiles instead of android-like widgets is what making the windows UI look good and different. I saw implementation of android widgets in between the boxy(WP look alike) tiles in Nokia X and it looked really ugly.

    Yes, but don't forget that MCSFT will use tiles as on this concept, they said earlier that some icons will be siplified, such as settings, alarm and so on. This concept is using those icons on tiles. So I guess this concept is most similar to the future WP10 concept.
    May be or may be not. We will have to wait to see what the actual WP10 looks like.

    Too good to be realist !
    Don't like hamberger menus that pop a half page on the screen;
    The music app would be better if it was full screen, without the small bar at the top (I still don't know why some apps as Instagram are made like that)
    Anyway I love the design and the environment of this UI !
    Bravo

    It looks very polished. But there are some serious problems with the icons (The same goes for Microsofts own leaked icons (Build 9201, fbl_awesome etc).

    - They will be a nightmare for people with poor vision.

    - Some aren't instantly recognizable.

    - There will be inconsistency again. We got rid of the Aero/Vista/WM6 look with WP7 and Windows 8. Now there will be conflicting graphical styles yet again. You can't expect every app developer to update their icons to this new style. Granted, not every single developer adhered to the metro icon style. But alot of them did.

    - The infographic icon style of original Metro has become ubiquitous. Alot of modern websites seem to follow this style.

    - The hollowing of alot of the icons do not bring anything useful to the icons. They just look like that for the sake of being "pretty". Wasn't that the reason for ditching skeumorphism in the first place?

    A controversial one. Definitely shines in certain things but Settings in OneDrive-styled design... meh.

    wow, what a great concept, look at all the changes.

    seriously, can people stop adding a full wall paper and large tile and calling it a concept? we already know thats gonna be a thing, we already saw a hundred concepts that that change and nothing more..

    Tbh, I kinda like the semi-opaque tiles. It could work the way transparent tiles do now. So developers don't have to add any new code if they already support transparent tiles. Its always better to have more options than no options.
