    Good grief, what an embarrassing number of posts from people who are absolutely crushed that this update that was never officially announced may not be available on the exact day that it was rumored to.

    This is exactly why Microsoft gives so little information on release dates... because of all the people like in this thread who can't come to grips with expecting something and then not being able to get it exactly when they thought they would.

    Not only that, but there is also speculation that WPCentral is withholding news to increase ad hits? Did it ever occur to you guys that WPCentral is trying to verify the information and get a better idea of what the delay might mean, what it was caused by, and how long it might last?

    Can we please calm down? Look, I think MS has been too slow as much as the next guy, but this is a HUGE update and anyone who thought it was 100% assured that it would launch and be available the day they announced it was being completely naive and has only themselves to blame. The flak MS will catch if they do release (even as beta) and it bricks peoples phones or causes call issues would be tremendous.
    MS actually has no excuse you know. This update was due last year so WP users have actually been really patient. I'm not among those throwing fits, but I understand where they are coming from and why they are so angry

    I had to laugh when I saw that someone had stated above that Daniel is just guessing. You'd think that regular readers would know well enough that Daniel isn't going to say something like that unless he has a solid source. And the people who want to know the source should know that as a journalist who is getting leaked information, as soon as he gives up a source, he will never have another source again. Come on, people. Think. Dan doesn't just get this stuff from fortune cookies, tea leaves, crystal balls, or tarot cards. He's a legit journalist with a reputation for reliable information.
    Like when one dude released a fake video of WP8.1 and Dan said it was fake, a lot of people here kept screaming "Dan's lying. He's trying to deceive us". Lol! People just believe what they choose to believe.

    make a poll, ask the users and you will see that I am not what I am saying this, most who asked not want skin in the background tiles. Where these images were released most of the comments are that users actually wanted real background, and most misinformed still believe that this is build.

    They should give us a choice. That's the point. Why can't we choose between "images/pictures background or skin background or just a color" ?
    Everybody happy.

    I don't need to make a poll. On The Verge, when this was leaked, the amount of likes pro skinned tiles surpassed that for those against it by a wide wide margin. You can't please everyone

    And then there is the even bigger portion of the population who neither know or care about skinned anything and who will either buy or not buy the OS based on other features. I know several people who own 1520s. None of them other than me even know about the future skinning option and even if they were told they would never use it. I understand some people wanting it and liking it but people need to chill on flipping out about it.

    I am curious about the skinning feature... Does the picture stay in place while the tiles move, or does it move with the tiles and repeat?

    Because eventually you clutter the OS and water down the design language by trying to please everyone.

    I have nothing against this option, but it does not serve me and as I said I think most q would not be satisfied with only this option if you come more options I do not care, but only these skins will not satifazer. Look at the reality, these are my current tiles, you can count on the fingers and feet how many of them seram benefit from this new feature, it would be really useful? Why not new background color or other options?

    I'm not here to bash this feature but I definitely agree that it looks like crap if you have ANY non-system apps on the homescreen which is ridiculous because most of my homescreen is made out of non-system apps...

    @ Bruno Arphenia,

    That's not what it will look like. The image will not be fixed in the tiles, it will be under the tiles which will be transparent.

    EDIT: Actually I looked better and I saw that some of the last tiles also have your universe background (it's just that they are so few that I could barely see them). The thing is, many of those tiles that don't have your selected accent colour will probably have an option to become transparent (maybe with an update?), so more tiles will be compatible with accent colour, meaning that more tiles will show your background photo.

    In the article 'Windows Phone 8.1 core has finished today' posted on WPC, I'm really interested in these lines. 'The Developer Preview release though has been delayed by about a week from the original plan. Still, developers in attendance*are expected to get a surprise or two to take home.'

    1. 'The original plan ' refers to 2nd April right? Although the initial date was never even confirmed, I can wait until the 9th or 10th.
    2.'Still, developers in attendance*are expected to get a surprise or two to take home.' This is really interesting....
