Glad you like it both of you. Well that is 2 upgraders.
I don't see the new UI as eyecandy, it looks flat, sick, and awful colours. I am not sure how old you are but some of us do not have such good eyes any more so everything the OS does to make things visible is good.
If M$ wants to sell this polished up turd of an OS it better have some choices and one of them can be the mode on display and another should be an aero mode.

Windows 9 leak shows how to make the Start menu look like Windows 7VideoThe Start menu is likely to be the highlight for many users of Windows 9. While it went away in Windows 8, the feature is making a triumphant return in Windows 9 and now we have a second look at the menu.
One thing is clear, this build will likely leak in the near future as it is now outside the hands of Microsoft and partners clearly have no issue with handing over the bits to the blogs. Posted below, we have a second video that shows off the Start menu but this time, we can see what happens if you remove all of the Modern apps.
I don't care about Aero (I disabled it on Win 7 and using Basic Theme) or eye candy stuff. That's cosmetics. I just want a plain start menu and faster OS. Those cosmetics can be done by anyone based on their preference. Eye candy stuffs should just be an option. It has nothing to do with performance (actually it just degrades performance if the system has to worry about rendering those eye candy crap).
Also if it was just the next update to 8.1 (which I believe it was and was pulled at the last moment) then it is an evolutionary product but they do not seem to have learnt anything from the past. If we do not learn from the past we are doomed to make the same mistakes again....Active Desktop...Channels...Bob.....Metro......all failed and loathed by the public.
