The close/min/max buttons remind me of KDE...

Beautiful, any chance you'll make this into Aero? Basic just lags for me since it doesn't use the GPU which Aero does.

Well, this is starting to annoy me. People have been saying that Basic doesn't use the GPU. It's almost as if people don't know what a GPU is. Basic DOES use the Graphics Processing Unit. A Graphics Processing Unit is your Video Card (ie: nVidia, ATI, etc.), and if Basic didn't use the it, then nothing would show up on your screen. People have been poorly mistaken and have been meaning to say that Basic does not use DWM, which has been implemented into Aero and manages and preloads the images that are inside of the currently applied visual style. Aero handles most of the images of a window as a whole, whereas basic uses many different ones, hence running faster. In short, please stop saying that Windows Vista Basic doesn't use the GPU; it's bloody annoying. That is all.

I have been theorizing on how this could be achieved. It may be as simple as changing a number of sizing margins, or it could be complicated enough to have to bypass some theme restrictions. I'm not sure, so please stop asking. Nevertheless, it will be done.

So, you're saying Basic runs faster?
Then why are so many people reporting that Basic lags for them, it's choppy etc?
I hate using it because of this.

And of course Basic is using the GPU, it just doesn't utilize it the same way Aero does. So, when I turn Basic on, why does the dmw.exe disappear from the Task manager?

I never said that Basic runs faster. Also, not that many people have been reporting this, and if they have, they have been reporting with an older desktop computer, or laptop. I'm saying DWM manages the Aero theme images better hence making it run faster. What I did say is that basic loads many different images therefore taking a lot more time. Apparently, your computer cannot handle the Windows Basic process, because when I run it, it runs just fine. Basic uses the GPU the same way Aero does, it's DWM that makes the Aero process run faster and more efficiently.

Hm.. well.. I got a e6400 c2d, 4Gb of ram, hd48701Gb. I think my computer should be able to handle it. Yet, it doesn't. Well, it does, it's just doing a poor job. It stutters alot which annoys me.

Anyway, I hope you didn't get offended, this was in no way directed towards you, and versus discussions bore me easily.

I can only hope more Aero ports are coming this way.

Hmm... I can't see why it would stutter. Mine doesn't and I've only got 1.7ghz AMD Athlon 64 x2 and a nVidia Geforce Go 6100 (which both kinda suck, although I play COD4 at medium graphic settings..?).

Anyway, when my new AC Adapter (old one has a short in it) gets mailed in, I'll work on Aero ports (right now, I'm forced to use WinXP on my Mum's Vaio).

This is great!!

Any chance we can get to see the Vista search box at the bottom of the Start menu? Not too usable on vista without it.

Thanks,
Snowiii

found a glitch, thought that it's only after applying but after restart is the same [link] and the taskbar is after restart doublesized and can't be resized. Anyone has the same issues?

Yeah, I'm not sure why that is, I'll have to check some images. Thanks for reporting =D

I'm sorry that I'm the only one with the bad news and of course is this a funny bug, cause when you resize the given window, then a resize of only 1px makes it disappear and the doublesized taskbar... isn't it a problem with icons in the tray? maybe vista thinks that they are too big and doublesized the taskbar :D

I thought that I will not like the thin taskbar, but hey, not bad man.

You have Vista Style Builder! Have you updated it recently? (between now, and last week)
