Great! I read the page and yeah, it is just a single window, but can you change any window? And sure, I would love a screenshot! Also, what is your graphics card? what is the minimum do you think?

Dude, this thing is useless (imo)
It is just a preview of what vista would look like.. so basically u can only see the blur effect on that one window

(the way u guys explained it was sorta confusing)

btw: nice set of programs on ur desktop man

I agree. It is useless. That is why I kept looking around and found two things that look sooooo much better.
One, I think, is a transformation pack.
You might've already heard of it.
The second one is pretty awesome too.
It is a shell pack. I don't know which one is better.
anyone have any opinions?

transformation pack: http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/...ion-Pack.shtml

shell pack: http://www.softpedia.com/get/Desktop...ico-Pack.shtml

I think a shell pack would be better, since it propably
would be easier to uninstall than the first one.
It also looks more like aero glass, but that is just my opinion
judging by the pictures.
