Windows 8 Metro v3.2 by Bonkietje Windows 8 Metro v3.2 by Bonkietje
The Windows 8 Developer Preview really changed my view of
the Windows Team. I think they are a little too much Metro
minded. And they sometimes forget why people really like
Windows. Personally, It's because off the taskbar. With the
developer preview in every metro app and even within the
Start screen the taskbar disappears. I really like the idea of a
fully fledged Start screen. But removing the taskbar is for me
an over the edge idea. Tell me what you think about it.

One of the best Metro concepts I've seen in DeviantArt. Especially at the start menu and toolbar icons.

This is genius. Microsoft is foolish to abandon the taskbar.

Not sure what to think about the Taskbar. It would be cool if the taskbar could be completely invisible (but still be there of course), though it would be kind of weird only seeing part of the background. Maybe.

The Control Panel looks too stark and plain. Some Metro-style icons would help make it easier to sift through. How come the Contron Panel's left panel is in non-caps, but the Windows Firewall's left panel is in all caps? What's the decision behind the red background for "Home or Private Networks" and green for "Public Networks"?

The Firefox's Aero-style window clashes with the overall Metro theme.

Otherwise, really good mockup! Very interesting for sure. Just sharing some things I thought seemed odd.

Oh, but I forgot to add I really do like the "Widget" tiles you designed. The application name is very bold and easy to read, while the icons are also nice and big so it's easy to notice. WAY better than the app launcher icons I've seen in the Start Menu screenshots.

I too am loving metro, but I think I'll find it hard to adapt to adapt to a taskbar-less environment. But who knows? I thought I would never adapt to the Ribbon UI back when Office 2007 was released.

Anwyay, great concept. I'd use it without thinking twice.

I don't really like the Windows 8 Developer Preview ;/ I tried it and started to love more my Windows 7 D:
The menu (second picture here) is too huge and looks quite lame. It should have smaller icons with some modern shadings or such, otherwise it looks like from MS Paint. Also the dissapearience of a taskbar! I was confuzed when I tried this version...
I hope they'll change those things tough!

Totally agree with you on the start screen.
I think the start screen already looks perfect on the windows developer preview.
It's just made to give you a preview on the taskbar interface.

The only thing I don't like is the Explorer windows, personally I would like to see one similar to the Zune Player aspect... But that's really the only thing since the rest is just SUPERB!

I was thinking about removing the transparent black shape from the taskbar.
Resulting that the taskbar almost gets invisible.

This looks really good. I am loving the metro design in Windows 8, but I agree completely. Getting rid of the taskbar is a huge mistake. This looks really damn good, and it looks really user friendly.
