I like that it is possible to make XP like 7.. but i mustache you a question... shouldnt XP be dead by now? And we see a perfect 7 result when 8 is near - in long term-sort-of-speak? xD

I see by your screenie that ViStart still doesn't support blurring.
I have tried both of these apps but had to give them up
because they did not play well with other programs.

Still, very nice work. :)

Yipee! Now wish that lee could fix the ViStart blur. It cuts off the top of the start orb.

The latest nightly of ViStart supports blur, but it fails because it cuts off the top 2 pixels of the taskbar and start orb, and shows the desktop.

It really looks ugly.

8 will come out in late 2012, and most consumers are still using XP. I have all the versions of windows from XP, and it's just fun to customize.
