Adopting a cleaner look in Windows 8.
Microsoft announced recently that Windows 8 would mark the end of its Aero Glass interface, first introduced in Windows Vista. In keeping with the new visual Metro style of the new OS, the company worked on flattening surfaces and removing unnecessary reflections and transparencies.
Windows 8 has received a mixed response when its Consumer Preview went live, with many users complaining that the Metro interface and removal of the Start Menu did not work well in a non-tablet environment. Microsoft however are confident that users will quickly learn the new interface and enjoy the fluidity that Windows 8 brings.
The Release Preview of Windows 8 is set to release next month, and is set to address many of the bugs and issues reported in the Consumer Preview.
