Looks great, but it is ultimately hopeless. Microsoft can't get even a basic drop shadow right (link), so the attention to detail required to execute this is absolutely out of their reach.

This is too awesome for Microsoft to adapt. I agree with the other comments about the search glyph.
One thing I would like to see are different elements in newer shots. Meaning, I see a lot of the same elements in your shots (close, minimize, maximize, play etc etc) And I would like to see your take on a different style of app.
All of your shots look great, but as far as the applications go they all look to have the Metro style, which again is awesome, but I would like to see some progression.
Good UI, colors, photo, type ... Good Jobs!
Big thanks everyone for the favs/comments.
@Matt Kump??, the tabs would shrink, of course. It would appear a bit cramped but surprisingly usable (tried it on ie10, it’s ok). Might have to do a mockup...
@Jay Robinson Me too, but the taller tabs would impede usability (it'd be difficult to move the entire window without the space up top). The taller tabs would extend to the top only when the window is maximized.
@Marcel Hadorn Yeah, the thinner loop bothers me too. I probably should have experimented with thicker outlines.
@Alex Pankratov Microsoft is changing. In win 8, border shadows are not as bad as win 7...but they’re moving away from the desktop altogether. On the metro side, they really are paying attention to details (especially with windows phone 7.5).
@Joe Norton Thanks. I wanted everything to be consistent throughout the desktop environment. I might do more complicated apps in the future.

Ehy! Bill… look at this and learn!!
Stylish, clean u.i. concept. Bravo!
Wow, so nice! Really refreshing to see this.
good good good!
I love how clean this layout is. Nice job.
This is tight - what Microsoft should have done a long time ago!
Ah I see… looks sharp. Would love to see how you can integrate bookmarks.
Incredible, very nice!
@Matt Kump?? Here’s an older screen of IE maximized with the favorites panel on the side.
The location bar is almost too subtle, but the little magnifying glass is a dead giveaway. A good interface is always in the details! Really great work.
Never liked the Bing logo, until now.. So Microsoft, look over here!!
Apply to Microsoft and polish the metro UI. Only way I'd use it.
