win95esque? I'm on Vista and it looks win95esque. The first thing any 'real' windows user does upon install is turn off the cheesy glass/aero/dancing menus

Yeah I know. Me too actually :-)

But I just meant it will probably need some cosmetic surgery before release.

If only so we have something to turn off!

No, that's the first thing geeks who think it actually improves performance do. Smart geeks will realize after a few days that it looks like ass, and is probably slower, certainly no faster, and re-enable Aero.

because having an OS that also looks good is such a bad thing....(referring to the glass/aero, not so much the "dancing menus").

Meanwhile everyone else is happy that their OS finally looks good in the UI department, more like the competition one might say. Everyone still has different tastes but for me Aero was a welcome improvement. ;)

For me it has no negative impact on productivity and is simply more pleasant to look at.
