    All I need now is a good clock app and weather app that display basic information but looks nice and transparent!

    Try Viether if it is still around for the transparent weather app

    Cool. What's the deal with the icon in the top right corner under the time; the fine line art one that looks like a paintbrush on a display screen? Is it an app or something else?

    Its a pin of the personalization as I use it a lot :) luckily it was small and fits nice up there.

    Heh, going to settings daily and I didn't put two and two together. I never knew those settings cab be pinned, learn something new each day.

    That start screen must look great in the metallic shell you painted.

    That's my issue with most of the layouts that pretty much take tiles out of the picture. They look like Android. I'll take my tiles, thank you very much :)

    I noticed that when you turn the transparency all the way up, it makes live tiles look exactly like icons...granted they are spaced too far apart.

    Only if it's a static live tile (which is the case when you resize the tiles to small). Otherwise, the flipping (and rolling) would make it look otherwise.

    Agreed. Whenever I see a custom start screen that takes away the tile interface I have to shake my head. It looks nice... if it was Android.

    So!.. does it even matter... its what I like, most live tiles are ugly or don't work, so for my design choice they will not do for now, I got windows for stable os that is still customisable
