    Yay! I'm happy to see this. I would've been disappointed if transparent tiles were removed.

    Looks great to me! I was a bit worried about the background being lost behind a bunch of solid tiles.

    Well now I need to find all the older threads and tell the people that the w10 UI is better than what some concepts showed. Now I want, maybe need the developer preview to make my Lumia 920 even better.

    Great mail 📮, photos apps and calendar 📅

    I'm not 100% sure if I prefer the WP8.1 look or the Windows 10 look on phones. I love the background images on my 930, plus with an AMOLED screen, black bits help with your battery. But the Windows 10 preview images look fantastic. Can't wait to give it a shot!

    I'm excited for Windows 10. Didn't think I would be, but I really am. For all my Microsoft devices. So many awesome things shown today.
    I've also been reinvigorated to work on building apps, especially for the Hololens!

    I just wonder if the build for preview will be somewhat finished or a very early beta. I know it wont be like the 8.X series but we can only hope for the best. My 1020 is ready to give it a try

    Windows 10 - Microsoft Windows

    Windows.com has a new page for Windows 10 that shows a phone with a background and transparent tiles on the Start Screen.
    Thanks for that. I was really hoping that would not be going away, but one of the articles posted earlier showed pics without them which got me to wondering. Actually, from the pic on that website, it looks like they might have even improved it by removing the black or white lines between tiles and just letting the background image show through. Again, thanks a ton.

    Lol, laughed at doge meme.

    i like the new start screen. It will be really nice, just we need really transparent tiles.
    On other side, not so sure if I like the UI of universal apps. They seem to lack the ease of use we have now, that hamburger button..I don't like it, but it really unifies the UI with desktop version... maybe it'll be better if they change hamburger with something else, like ... or pizza :D
    Seriously, they need to but that icons and commands on top of app to the bottom, they are making hard to use phone one handed.

    Can anyone please tell me why the hate for the Hamburger icon everywhere? I don't get the idea...

    If it's linked to iOS or Android, people here hate it...that's the reason people hate the hamburger icon. I personally don't care. It has no effect on how I use an app.

    Anyways, I'm digging the background image. I hope there's still an option to keep it as is as well. Always good to have a few options.
