The metro style seems to have intruded into IE10RP for Windows 7. Elements such as scrollbars, drop-down boxes, checkboxes, buttons, radio buttons, etc. are now metro-styled instead of doing what every application does by following the style of the current theme.

I can't seem to find bug. Is that an internal ID?

Not fixed. Don't close bugs as 'fixed' that aren't fixed.

@ Microsoft
This isn't feedback. It's a bug.
You've either deliberately ignored Windows 7 Aero styling in favour of Windows 8 Modern, or simply forgotten about the differences between both OS' UI guidelines. Which is it? If the former, state as such. If the latter, release a fix for the preview.
