Is there another site? cause that one does not do a good job of it sorry, I used to use it. :tazz:

Hey the IE7 that is shows in the second link, is that newer one that is going to be for XP and Vista ONLY? ;)

Would it look like that for real?
What are the security features in that new IE?

When is Vista going to be released in NZ (the final)?

While Windows XP and earlier versions of Windows use a lot of graphical elements, or pictures to display the user interface, Windows Vista will have a lot of those elements coded into the software. It's a much different approach to how Windows operates, and how it displays information. While there may be themes that approximate the look of Vista, you'll have to wait for Vista to get the full effect.

IE7 will be a much needed upgrade to Internet Explorer in both security and features. It will only be available for XP users with Service Pack 2 installed, and Windows Vista.

Windowsblinds is a decent program in which you are able to skin your desktop and generally the look of the windows interface or the GUI
There have been many longhorn and vista skins out currently and there will undoubtably be more seeing as vista has been released to selected people
Try out these sites

True that it sucks up memory. But it appears to me the more programs you run the less RAM is uses. Sortive like a digital RAM scale. I'm currently running the offical build 5112, and its running a version of IE that I havn't seen before(apparently its version 6.00.5112.0)... Looks alot like firefox.
