    Your concept looks amazeballs but I still slightly prefer the MS style.

    Looks much better than I thought, with the parallaxing.
    I agree, it surely looks better than I figured it will be, but I still prefer my concept to this, you know, my backgrounds was meant to have a parallax effect as well (similar to Windows 8).
    The thing is I wish now since they went this way, is to at least give us the option to have more colors than white and black for the background. I swear I am sick of the look and feel of the apps menu, it's so boring that it could kill!

    You realy think that your concept is less clutter then Microsofts actual working thing? To say the truth: it's not. Heck, you concept is a mess. Also, this "If you used a background with some white spaces, text and other white stuff on tiles won't be readable." realy isn't an issue as the backgrounds will work like they do in the Windows 8.1 startscreen: they will be dimmed down in colors.

    Funny story. People were crying saying "MS this is not what your users asked for" but then the poll on WPCentral has those for skinned tiles 10 times greater than those against it. (over 2000 more users prefer the skinned option).
    Well, their question wasn't which one do you prefer.. It was do you like it or not. I even voted that I do, it's better than what we currently have, but that doesn't mean anything as I'd chose a real background in a heartbeat, so as many others. For a more appropriate poll, they should put both running on a device, ask clearly: which do you prefer more. That would have gave you a real answer.

    They could just let us change the color of background.Black and white are only 2 colors.

    Its one registry setting lol!!!
    That why I like jailbreaking, because these guys are not enough....

    Yes I'd like to change the background colour, I'm wondering how hard it is to pick the right cyan blue and make a background, then I'd have no ground between my tiles.
