Transparent Windows in Yosemite

Hi, I just downloaded and installed the new Mac OS X version, Yosemite. For the most part, its nice, but what I don't like and what I think is going to get old really quickly is the transparency feature that the windows have as you move them around the desktop.

I care about what I see in the active window, not whats on the desktop below that window. In fact, I don't see any purpose  why I would need to see a blurred image of whatever is beneath my active window - does anyone see a purpose for that?

However, my question in this thread is -- Is there a way for me to turn the transparency feature OFF? I want to illuminate it completely if possible.

Thank,
Fulano
