    Yuck. While I can understand getting rid of some of the gloss (particularly that light bouncing off the top of each icon), I think they go too far. It's not really the lack of a "glassy" look; it's how they drained it of nuance and subtlety by making each tile a single color.

    A case of a reasonable change would be what Google did to its Chrome icon. The old one looked like, well, chrome, painted with the different colors, and was very shiny. They changed it to a flatter look, but they didn't take all the nuance out of it. There were still highlights and slightly varying shades of each color. That's the kind of approach I'd like to see with an OS; it doesn't have to be either super-shiny or completely flat as if we were back to the days of 16 colors. I think there's a happy medium in between.

    When the photocopiers are done they start up the time machine and claim that they invented it. :D

    The pictures I have seen look A LOT like Windows Phone. Don't know if any of them are legitimate though. I guess once all platforms look the same the only difference will be cost and quality of hardware.
