Windows Microsoft has released an interim build of Windows Vista, Build 5342, today to a select group of testers. This is the first build to come with the 'real' Aero Glass: fully scalable vector based transparencies that take advantage of pixel shading. The previous builds contained Aero Express and Aero Express with transparancy, not the real Aero Glass. Other notable improvements: a complete firewall, support for Pocket PC 2000, 2002, and 2003 synchronization, and more. Flexbeta has screenshots, but Flexbeta seems pretty down to me at the moment.

People are so tired of those "We put a lot of stuff under the hood to be sharpened and better - safier then ever"; So nowadays the business trick is; "Weeell we have 3d accelerated gui - it make you work better!"

Sry that's the way it is ;)

That's great if they are "tired" of it. That's their problem. There are tons of changes under the hood and a change in look&feel as well. If people can't accept reality, that's tough.
