I don't think enough people here have Vista Beta 1 running on their machines to warrant a separate thread for it. Vista is the only OS running on my laptop, so I guess I'll post a screenshot in the desktops thread if you wanted. There are plenty of screenshots all over the web showing the glass effect and the placeholder UI too. It's likely to change quite a bit before RTM though. Remember what XP looked like during Beta 1?
Hey Net, with the Windowblinds 5, would we need a rather meaty GPU to do the glass effect? I ask cuz I'd like to run that on my lappy, and I have integrated gfx...I'm curious if it would start running a little sluggish
Edit: What can anyone tell me about the Vista Customization Pack that was made by some JoeJoe guy? I have seen some users have their system completely ruined by it, but it comes with all the necessary files and stuff... http://www.joejoe.biz/joejoe/vista.htm
Apu, as far as your question about WB5 goes, I believe resource-usage is much better in this version than it was in the past. I don't have an XP setup to try this out on at the moment (beta testing Vista), but kcnychief and andy_rose have it installed and have reported good results. Check out this month's desktops thread. Give it a try. It couldn't hurt.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
