    I doubt one aero feature is going to be much of a space hog :/
    Besides I would rather Windows handle any base for which any third party would write a third party theme for and not have that third party write from scratch

    All of the sliding and fading aero stuff takes up way more space than glass would :)
    Not to talk about all of the wasted time it takes all of that sliding and fading to function

    Well, if everyone is so concerned about disk space, battery life, etc., why not remove Metro and tiles entirely. Let's remove any theme possibilities, heck let us just have a white screen and text, we will call it the DOS view.

    I find arguments like this next to meaningless. In today's computing world I would like to see the actual data on battery life. The amount of disk space is negligible, I can certainly think of a lot of other things that could be removed to reduce space.

    Absolutely right. In the days of Terabyte disks, disk space is really the last argument that would convince me. If I look around this room, I have probably 5 or 6TBs lying around. So I really do not worry about disk space.

    It's not actual disk space I'm talking about. I have plenty of that. It's the bloat that is incorporated into the Windows OS. There are features, like AERO, One Drive, etc. that I don't want. I like a lean OS that will run lightening quick on my SSD and that I can create system images in just a few seconds. I built a PC with hardware that is designed to be fast, which is why I like W8.1 over W7. W7 is a step slower in performance than W8.1 in just about every aspect. However I realize I'm probably not going to get what I want.

    LittleJay, you peeked my curiosity

    You said you built a computer to be fast. How do know 8.1 is faster over 7?

    A little off topic again but I'd like to see colored headers for apps as in 9841!

    Seems that this subject matter really gets folks up in arms on either side of the fence. . .as for me it it is there then I will use it, if it isn't then no big deal.

    Good.

    IMO, the transparent Taskbar is awful.
    Still, people should be able to choose.

    MS should just offer a plain jane, vanilla OS at a lower price and then offer additions like AERO, etc. to those who want to purchase them for a nominal cost.
    Prexactly. A modular OS! I've been saying this ever since win 8 was dumped on us. That way you can have a lightweight, bare bones OS, a fully loaded, high octane OS, or anything between.

    People seem to think that an OS is like a car, the less equipment you get, the lower the price will be. I don't think it works like that. An OS aren't even like other software, i.e. CAD suites, games or office type products. If anything, the way they are designed, it would probably cost more to remove pieces than just leave them in and let the user do the work of turning them off or on.
