In the Windows 8 Consumer Preview, we see a hint of the customization capabilities that Microsoft will be adding to the final release of the product. This includes, among other things, the ability to choose between a limited handful of Start screen themes. And while we know more choices are coming, the more I use Windows 8, the more I want to customize this screen. And I’m worried Microsoft won’t go far enough.

We'll be stuck with third party tools and hacks.
