'Dario D.' has written an article that shows how he would redesign the new Windows 8 screens. The screen shots of his concepts look great and certainly look better than the new "Metro" screens that the pre-release version of Windows 8 developer edition has shown us. Take a look at his site. Thanks Dario for sending me the screen shots!
