I hope they don't use the same old vista icon set. Why not make it much easier for the community to build them along with other eye candy, and for users to install.

I think they should even set up a site for community submissions.

Is it just me or do they look really fake? Looks TOO bloated to be real.

I agree it does look a little like ubuntu on 'Aero-roids'.

I also think it only looks as bloated as vista would look on initial boot with the sidebar and running at a very low resolution.

Like I said leave it up to the community to customize it the way we want. Or at least make it easy to do like Linux. It is gonna look like crap 2 years after release compared to what os dt will look like anyways.

Seems like people are getting dumber, so bigger icons with more colors looks to be the solution.
