Due to the increasing amount of PC’s in emerging markets Microsoft no longer want to take responsibility for ecological damage on a greater scale and will remove Aero themes as soon as possible.

You will still be able to use the themes: High-Contrast #1, High-Contrast #2, High-Contrast #3, High-contrast Black, Windows 7 Basic and Windows 7 Classic and a variety of other dark themes.
