    Aero may have been criticised in the early days of Vista when some hardware was reputed to be somewhat lacking... but just how valid an argument was that really. W10 is little different speed wise on my 8yr old test laptop than Vista with Aero enabled. Both fly along pretty well.

    Hardware these days must surely be miles ahead of what might have been considered marginal back then. How hard would it be to program Aero to become active after say 2 or three minutes from booting if it was deemed to slow things down. Make it a user option. Aero on/off. Delay after boot... have a selectable drop down... suspend on battery, again a user option.


    For those of you that didn't use Vista, you missed out on a visual treat. Seven was not as good in that regard imo. Eight and Ten are too stark visually.

    While looking for logs generally, I see there is a folder called AERO in windows\diagnostics\system...
    Searching for AERO actually pulls up a huge amount of hits, themes, resources, frameworks etc etc.
    Ultimately these are probably a hangover from Vista/W7 so they may not be indicative of any specific glassy intentions, and indeed selecting the 'Aero' theme merely displays a variant of the WTP themes library.


    I guess, for those of us who ARE prepared to spend some of our CPU cycles on a more graphically rich display, will have to wait tantalisingly closer to RTM...

    Couldn't agree more. Vista, to me, was the best OS they ever made. My Ultimate had everything, and I mean, everything.
    Alas it's now history since I "upgraded" it to 7 Ultimate.

    I've been using System Transparency from Prisoner from Windows Seven Forums and it's been working fine with the dark theme I'm using.

    I tried to recompress it and post it here. See if it worked.

    You're most welcome. The only thing I can think of is it has my user name, in the system address so you may have to change it if it doesn't do it automatically.
