  1. Aero Glass for Win8 RC4

    How is continually clicking "OK" to dismiss a popup nag helping to test the software? How does it aid the testing process? Intentionally annoying people as you describe is a terrible way to build goodwill for your software if and when it does go for sale. No offense but I'm not sure who's worse - Microsoft for removing Aero Glass, or the attitude of the guy trying to add it back in.
  2. That popup is annoying and only irritates people. Isnt the best testing where people can run the software all day to see if normal activity will break it or create conflicts? How is the testing made more meaningful if people are discouraged from using it for longer than 5 or 30 minutes at a time? What I'm reading between the lines in the responses is that because so many have asked for it to be removed, now you aren't going to back down because there's some (mysterious) lesson people need to be taught.
  3. Aero Glass for Win8 RC4

    I play some intense multiplayer games and do not want to be surprised by AeroGlass popup in middle of game, so bigmuscle if you want us to pay to get rid of popup that's fine give us PayPal option, no one thinks your work shouldnt be rewarded. But all popup is doing right now is trolling us, your fans. Please reconsider.
  4. Start Is Back - 2.1 release

    You are correct sir. The Windows insiders are telling the pro-Microsoft bloggers like Mary Jo Foley and Paul Thurrott that a return of the start button will only bring up the Metro Start Screen, not the classic Start Menu. And if 8.1 does end up removing dependency code that StartIsBack and others rely on, they'll really be trolling their most longtime users. Microsoft just doesn't get it.
  5. Aero Glass for Win8 RC4

    Welp, I was just playing a game for 45 minutes and got the popup right in the middle of the action which put the game into windowed mode and made me have to stop and deal with it. Uninstalling. I'd love to have Aero Glass back some day and hopefully BM reconsiders these obnoxious popups.
  6. Aero Glass for Win8 RC4

    Well good points but I think we understand its not finished/buggy/could break things by the nature of it not even having an installer and we're having to tweak a reg file to make it work in the first place.
  7. Aero Glass for Win8 RC4

    Tried to install this on Win8 Pro x64. Not working - no glass effect, title bars are simply 100% transparent. I do not have any start menu replacement install, so nothing is interfering with transparency settings. Also, why the "DEMO VERSION" nag/popup? Hopefully author reconsiders removing it UNTIL he has a version for sale.
