    Glad to know I'm not the only one who liked the look of Vista (mostly). I miss Vista's taskbar :-(

    vista looks gross and bloated...

    7 looks prettier. But the vista beta 2 sound scheme was SO beautiful, OH! Definitely pairs with vista's design though. But 8's sound scheme is very elegant.

    I liked the look of Vista, but it slowed everything down. Win7 had decent looks and performed better on the PC's I run it on.

    The idea of live tiles really is the same. I liked them a little bit in vista, grew to not really use them in 7, I stopped after the windows live gallery was cancelled.

    I`m wondering just where all this "at a glance" information is on the metro tiles because all I can see is random pictures from my library, Random Contacts from my address book and one line headlines from the news app and E-mail. (and that's it ).
