Hello friends,
I have just installed windows 8 final edition (build 9200). But I noticed that I cannot enable the aero glass effect through personalisation (it was present in windows 8 customer version).
So I did a bit of search in google and came across some videos in youtube.
You may know the steps but I included it for elaboration.

I tried the steps (shown in youtube) like-------Going to "personalise"----setting high contrast white-----going to colour----then minimising it----then opening a new "personalise" window-----selecting a windows theme----closing it----then save changes in the previous window.

But I noticed that the process is very unstable as after I change any background image the appearance reverts back to the original settings(without aero glass effects).

Also I came across a software called bLend (by Lord Devrexster) which claims to stabilize the aero glass effect.
But still using bLend, when I change the background image the aero glass effect turns off.

I hope you may help me as I am a very big fan of the aero glass that were the style statements of Windows Vista & 7.

Yes, it does. but through some awkward and buggy ways. For example, the glass blur by Big Muscle. You can get the glass back, but you have to leave a configuration windows opened at all time. I guess we need to wait some more time for a better solution.

Only Glass and the rolling tab task switcher were removed. You still have Peek, Jumplists, Shake, Dock etc.

Glass didn't really add anything to Windows 7 and only used CPU cycles better spent on other things.
