I'm also glad they brought back the SQUARE CORNERS. The rounded corners of Vista, 7 and XP always bugged me. It's all the more gladdening when I found out that Windows Classic theme was completely removed. (Turning off visual styles in the Performance deal will not switch to classic.)Microsoft published a "brief" history of the Windows interface in a blog post today that offered some flashes of candor about Vista and Windows 95 and argued that the tablet as we know it today is one device too many. Redmond also said it was dropping Aero Glass.
First and foremost, Microsoft said it has "moved beyond" Aero Glass on the Windows 8 desktop, in Friday's Building Windows 8 post.
