    Hi,

    Is there a way to add Aero Themes for Windows 8 Pro MSDN, as I don't have them on the "personalize" window!
    I'd like to have the transparency option too if possible ^^

    I'm not looking for Aero Glass feature, I just want the Aero themes that appeared once on the previous consumer preview that I've been using..
    They allow transparency, not glass like windows..

    You can't, Microsoft removed transparency support.

    Do you still not get the poin do you???

    Everything you call transparency, glass and blurr(which can be removed) is provided by DWM.exe(which is essential, .theme or msstyle without it cannot bring you glass back)
    Hard is that in 8 Dwm is there, but without aero code inside, so.....

    on top of that, if you do not have a fully DWM graphic card driver, in the future for 8 hardware ready, you will just blow your gpu..... as was in XP era enabling transparency

    So if this will be ported, enjoy until you have a Windows 7 hardware, hoping that ufficialy 8 drivers will still support it!!!
