So Vista became downloadable on MSDN and I have just installed it. Well I like the new interface but it shows desktop icons as very large, though that should be customizable. Here are pics:

Desktop on First Run:


Desktop (notice the largeness of icons). The mydocuments now shows you Username instead (Under Recycle bin named Filip):


Personalize Windows is the replacement to Desktop properties. You change wallpaper and screensaver, ect here:


Controlpanel has new icons:


Oh and here are the new cursors. The hourglass is gone, replace with a circle. The glow moves around the circumfrence.


This is Windows Ultimate (LOL at the name) edition, which I upgrade WinXP from. The installer is so self-automated it scared me. Basically the only thing you do is tell it to install updates or not, and some drive partitioning.

I don't intend to update to Vista until its completely unavoidable. Getting a new Windows program always means new settings to get used to and new bugs to get annoyed with (*Curses Microsoft*). <_<

I don't think so. You'll need to buy it.
