    I really hope they have the option to keep the current wp8.1 implementation! I'm still happy they aren't abandoning transparent tiles, but would really miss the parallax.

    i honestly hope i can keep the current behaviour. going to be upset. I hate everything that is not black or text on my phone. it's just meaningless wasted battery.
    It's the main reason I went back to a Windows phone 8 device.
    Real dark on Android wasn't dark enough.. Lol...

    Yeah but if you can look entirely trough the tiles, it has no borders, thus making it not a tile...
    you are right, if borders are removed then transparent is not an option, I kinda like black borders with transparent tiles, it looks sexy, removing borders and placing translucent tiles over compete background wallpaper looks ugly, why not then even make the tiles round, atleast ppl will buy the devices thinking they are android.

    This may have already been posted, but this image is from the Insider blog, without a doubt the tiles have transparency.

    This image from W10 looks amazing.

    So I guess I guess everyone is going to ignore my post pointing out that in iOS & Android the icon doesn't have to be tapped, instead you can just swipe in from the left side of the screen. I'm sure the functionality will be the same here.
    The trouble is that would introduce a pretty big inconsistency between Windows 10 on phones and Windows 10 on tablets, where swiping in from the left invokes the app switcher UI.

    Also, to those who are afraid of translucent tiles, there is a difference between W10 translucency and iOS translucency. On W10 you get a simple layer for the tile in front of the background that keeps the image sharp, while on iOS translucency blurs the image under layers.

    This is good to hear. I love the transparent tiles. So I'm assuming no app needed?

    You mean just like the Win 7 Aero theme on a desktop machine?.
