    Im very sad, its ugly with app that do not change accent color it will turn an ugly riot :( Why not backgroud animated to your father windows 8.1? Why?
    I honestly don't know how to feel about this. I would also rather the background color or picture or whatever sit behind the live tiles...this is just...I'm not sure how to feel. Let's see if this is the direction they would go with

    If you can select the pictures to use, then this might work. Hopefully that's the case

    I don't like it that way. It's good that tiles have their own colour, makes it easier to find what you are looking for.

    I think this would work well with the white background if true...

    Yuck, this is horribly ugly. Like the other have said, I prefer that the tiles have their own color, and the custom background is behind the tiles and if not custom images, at least W8 style predefined backgrounds. Maybe even ones that move like in W8.1 :D One can dream.

    I think we should see it in person first before we make judgment on what's ugly.

    I don't even need custom photos selected by the user for the background. Just give me a wide range of colours to choose from, so that it doesn't have to be only black or white. Why is this so difficult to do?

    It's beautiful, consistent with Windows 8.1 and doesn't interfere with the beautiful clean live tiles

    Please NO they can't be serious. MS should fire the monkey that made this horrible looking mockup. If this is the final decision I don't gonna use it ever.

    That mockup is terrible. Though it's hard to judge from it because Tom said it's just using Skinery (though did you notice the wide tile for the Store?).

    If they go down this route I don't get how it'll work with live tiles. If you've got tiles that cycle through photos, have news headlines, show the weather etc...how is that going to work?

    It would be much better if they had W8 style backgrounds to choose from.

    After thinking about this for a while, this won't work...Imagine what would happen to the people hub tile and other tiles that cycle. How would that fit in. Background behind the tiles is the best option.

    I still hope that they make backgrounds (behind the tiles) available. In my opinion it looks beautiful with a nice background.

    I mean...why skinned tiles? This is just stupid. I take back my post where I said this would work...Sigh, I just give us the option to change the background from the bland black and white. That's the option most people asked for but they decided to do "what they wanted". Guess the listen but don't hear. Sigh, this just put me off big time. Gosh MS!

    EDIT: I guess I'll follow JaS00555's advice...I'll reserve my judgement till I see it

    If you look at his comment below, he basically confirms it will be included. You dont have to enable it though.

    Agreed. And to anyone saying the skinery thing is stupid, it is a CHOICE. You dont have to use it.

    But yeah, I hope we also have an option for background behind the tiles of some sorts. But first and foremost, I want MORE tile color choices.

    but it is a choice that does not meet the expectations of most users, all they wanted background including windowsphone.uservoice.com we were not talking that way , skinery already does this , and who used must have seen how horrible when we mix the image of background with other apps fixed color images and tiles slide. Much more obvious would be to follow the line of Windows 8.1 design is lovely but infelzimente Microsoft seems to have not yet learned how to standardize a consistent design in their products , like Apple. See the iPad follows the same look of iPhone and seem distinct products which share only the same initial idea , it would be more pleased acertivo exactly who requested this feature and let preserved the option of still using and enjoying the black or white background , for those who do not interessase , so this just creating a customization option that actually will not aggregate it does not satisfy . I hope they at least give us the freedom of choice of new colors , cuz this new customization option sounds like a big fail as it will not meet the expectations of those who requested this feature .

    Don't worry. This was made by Tom using Skinnery. We are yet to see the final product. Hopefully it would be a lot better

    So let me get this straight. We're getting skinned tiles as backgrounds, instead of background wallpaper? Or are we having BOTH?

    I've seen what it looks like in 8.1. It's just like Skinery. It's completely optional too, obviously. I think it's kind of a neat idea, but whatever.

    I'm a User who would like more customization to the system, and thus will not meet my expectation and I believe that most people will not, since it will be impossible to use it in a really cute way to stay if you have a variety of apps, ie I will not use, then continue without options. Very sad was one of the features that most expect, hope microsoft reconsider.
