    This patch will enable you to use unsigned Visual Styles.

    Works with:

    Windows 8 RTM x86, x64

    To use custom theme:

    1) Delete the C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\aero\VSCache\Aero.msstyles_langid_96.mss file
    2) Replace aero.msstyles with cuztomized one
    3) Select theme

    Code:

    That's because WSB was only set up to use one STREAM resources as in Vista and 7 there was only one. So that's more of a bug displaying the right image rather than something that won't work.

    The only major thing I can think of off the top of my head is the inclusion of new resources (you can see them if you open up aero.msstyles in a resource editor). One of which are, I presume, Metro's animations (AMAP).

    ^^ taskbar drop shadow looks cool. it seems everything is there in windows 8 but microsoft is hiding it like classic theme in your screenshot.
