Where windows will be by RTM
Microsoft posted this screenshot of the final Windows 8 window chrome, on the Building Windows 8 blog.
Windows 8 RP isn’t here yet, but this is where we’re headed. (Click to enlarge.) According to Microsoft, “We made the appearance of windows crisper by removing unnecessary shadows and transparency.... [We] updated the appearance of most common controls, such as buttons, check boxes, sliders, and the Ribbon. We squared off the rounded edges, cleaned away gradients, and flattened the control backgrounds to align with our chrome changes. We also tweaked the colors to make them feel more modern and neutral.”
