Default Re: The Vista Death Watch

You do have to admit, though, that Vista is a lot nicer to look at than that crappy Playskool XP look. Yeah, I've tried changing themes, but I haven't found any that aren't cheezy. I tried the Vista Transformation Pack, too, and it was buggier than running Vista. And you have to pay for Windows Blinds to get transparent title bars which aren't implemented as nicely as Vista's. It isn't even possible to have a Start Orb in XP without making a small app that sits on top of the Start button.

I know these things are unnecessary, but after using Linux with Compiz/Fusion I can't bear to look at XP anymore and Aero is the best Windows offering for eye-candy.

The only trouble that I have had with Vista turned out to be a blown video card; it wasn't even anything to do with Vista. So I'm happy with it.
