If you setup an icon with a white foreground colour and transparent background you get pixels that are not white (I am defining white as: #xxFFFFFF - where xx can be anything) there are some "grey" pixels that appear to be used for some anti-aliasing. 

I would expect the icon to be made up pixels of only either:
  • #xxFFFFFF (white in any transparency)
  • #00xxxxxx (full transparency)

This may sound pedantic and I wish I didn't ask but for Windows 8 applications if you place an icon on the lock screen it must follow those rules:

Thus the icons created by Metro Studio do not meet the criteria.

It would be awesome if it could be updated in the future to support this requirement.
