<![CDATA[A new leak and a new video. We are starting to see some shadows of the Metro-esque flourishes that may characterize the next version of Windows (Windows 8 ) and... We like! Looks really beautiful with smooth fonts and nice soft blue colors... Here's an image AND a video.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tKuxZHcJov0]]>
New Windows 8 Video: Beautiful Control Panel Settings

I suppose Metro is more useful for touch devices but I dislike how there’s no defined border around any of the buttons. It’s just plain text. Sure when active there’s a defined box or on mouseover (which is useless on touch) – but otherwise it seems less logical and more aesthetic. I suppose that is the trend with technology. Still, I’ll wait to see what the finished product looks like before I judge too harshly.
Also it goes without saying that the horizontal scrolling looks terrible. I’ll assume this is just a pre-alpha issue and the finished product won’t be anything like that resolution-wise?
