    why do you guys want backgrounds so bad? theres almost no point! the tiles are to close together, youd only see a tiny piece at any given time, and adding transparency to the tiles would then add an inconsitancy to the OS and goes against metros design language, FFS if you want decade old outdated features then go back to lagdroid and IOS, WP is taking a much more modern approach to this.. you don't need cluttering backgrounds.
    don't mind the transparency as much if you can change the translucency of it, still some people really want it sk maybe now they will stop ********.....

    I'm against transparency because to put it bluntly, that is old, thats not what metro is about! do you see transparency anywhere else in the os? No, why make the start screen (the CORE of the os might i add) break its own rules and use a different design scheme! (also.. no one bring up the video player, thats transparent because it simply has to be)

    They should implement both options, then everyone will be satisfied.
    When will people learn...You can NEVER maybe EVERYONE happy....EVER...

    Microsoft could hand out a brand new 8.1 Phones made of SOLID GOLD to EVERYONE on this forum and I would bet that SOMEONE would b.i.t.c.h. about it.... There is no way to win this...

    I agree. But, by giving us both options, more people would happy than if they only gave us one.

    I believe Daniel "The Great" Rubino said that, while this feature is conformed: we may not necessarily see it in this form. Therefore, it's entirely possible the custom image will be BEHIND the tiles, not on the tiles.

    So lets chill a little. We've still got a few weeks before BUILD and we figure out what's going on here.

    I like it, backgrounds wont work on the phones as there is no space unless the tiles are made smaller.
