Smile Whats New In Vista?

1) The first thing that is new which you will notice in vista is the looks.

2)It has got a whole new looks as compared to XP.

3)If your video card supports the Aero Glass interface, you get translucent title bars,cool animations and lots of eye candy.

4)There is a beautiful side bar with a good collection of gadgets as follows-

* Calculator that performs basic math functions.
* Analog clock (several designs to choose from).
* CPU and memory meters that let you keep an eye on the amount of system resources in use.
* Currency converter for quick international monetary calculations.
* Feed viewer for tracking news, sports, and entertainment headlines via RSS.
* Feed watcher for monitoring your selected RSS feeds.
* Notepad for quickly jotting reminders or bits of info you need to keep.
* Slide show applet that displays a continuous slide show of the photos in your Pictures folder.
* Stocks ticker that lets you track trading prices and see charts for your selected stocks.
* Countdown timer for alerting you when a specified interval has passed.
* Number and picture puzzles.
* Recycle bin.
* Games.

5)The next new thing that you will notice is the icons.It has a whole new collection of icons that looks great and increase its looks.

6)The Start menu hasn't changed much. You can still pin your favourites to the top-left side, and the right side still contains commonly used items such as Documents, Pictures and Music, Computer, Network and Control Panel, Search, and Help. If you want to restart, switch users, or put the system to sleep, you'll need to click the small arrow by the Shut Down and Lock buttons.

Okay what is the point of this? It is very useless. Not to be harsh. But to talk about Aero being the first 2 major updates in Vista is just sooooo wrong. Let alone you dont even cover 1/4 of the gadgets available for Vista.

Windows Vista Discussion

Read thru that topic if you want some real info on the changes in Vista. The looks is not the only thing changed.
