Update: 11/03: Another, Surface TV commercail "Extended footage of the school girls from The Surface Movement TV commercial," shows the girls, along with some boys in 1980's break dancing outfits, kicking it old school while holding the new Surface tablet.

Microsoft along with new version of the Windows site, also gave a fresh look to the launched the new Personalization Galley. In a Windows Experience blog post, Jennifer Shepherd, highlighted the new-and-improved Personalization Gallery.

When visited, the first thing you'll see larger thumbnail images and more info about each desktop theme on the main themes page.

New Windows Personalization Gallery with dynamic and panoramic themes for Windows 8 and Windows RT launches

"Now you can easily see how many images each theme contains, as well as a good-size preview image and the window color, without going to the theme's details page. Navigating to the details page is also easier to do now, since you can just click on (or tap) the image," explains Shepherd.

"To see a larger version of each thumbnail image, click it (or tap it). The < > symbols bring up a new row of thumbnails to look at. An even easier way to page through the entire "slide show" of images is to just keep clicking (or tapping) the large preview image on the right - that will transition you to the next image in the set, so you can see them all."

Clicking "Download theme" downloads the entire theme, which includes all the images.

You'll also notice, that the number of images in the Aqua Dynamic theme is listed as "31+" on the main page, and as "18" on the details page -- "the number 18 is the number of images available to preview -- while the theme actually contains more than 31 images," Shepherd explained. "Because we continue to add new images to most of our RSS-fed dynamic themes every week, these themes are huge, and getting huger all the time," he added.

Another improvement to the theme details pages is that some images now have captions.

In addition, new panoramic themes for Windows 8 and Windows RT along with new wallpapers and themes are also available.

Note, "themes originally created for Windows 7 do however work on Windows 8 and Windows RT. But the reverse is not true. Themes created in the Windows 8 format (such as the panoramic themes) do not work on Windows 7," Shepherd stated.
