The number of software components, tools, skins, icons, etc. for customizing Windows is overwhelming. That can be a good thing (lots of choices) or a bad thing if you're busy and don't have time to sift through it all...
That said, would someone kindly to tell me the quickest path to a realistic Vista Aero look on Windows XP? Actually I'm a former Object Desktop user who got out of the whole customization thing a few years ago--mostly due to the time thing and frustration with how geeky and complex the whole customization scene had become. I do geek all day long at work as a DBA. At home I just want an Aero look on my XP machine that won't take hours or make it unstable (which eliminates VTP and other freeware solutions out there).
WindowBlinds is a given. But should I jump back into full Object Desktop? (Probably don't need OD Ulitmate since I won't be designing any skins myself.) Last but not least, what is the best Aero-like skin/theme? I'll be in your debt if you can save me hours of searching through skins, icons, etc, just to get the best Aero look! I used to enjoy that but, time is short these days...
Thanks for any help and a Merry Christmahanukkawanza to all!
