Alright so lets just start off with, My name is Jacob!
I was looking into purchasing vista awhile back. Then I went to a windows vista preview class and I was not impressed with it at all. During the class one student raised his hand and asked the teacher "Couldn't you just purchase/download the programs needed to make your xp look like vista?" I then went home and did just that. I downloaded a few programs and presto I made a vista look-alike. Yes yes, it doesn't come with everything vista offers. But it gives you the vista interface if you just like the look. You get the whole Aero interface that vista offers, and also the 3D flip interface when you are scrolling through your programs using (alt+tab.)
Here are a couple of screenshots of my success in doing this process:
I hope you enjoy, I would love to see how everyones turns out. If you have any suggestions of making this better than feel free to post.
If you are here just to flame, please leave this thread doesn't need your negativity.
