Windows 7: Anybody tired of Aero?

I've never tired of Aero.
I shut it off in the betas of Vista and haven't bothered with it since!

aero's cool. it's just a bummer that the alternative is that fugly taskbar. MS should have made it "different" when aero isnt on. like the MCE taskbar, or something.
in other words: transperant taskbar = pretty, opaque taskbar = wtf!? eww.

i dont really notice it in windows, probably due to they're usually maximized, so it's really just the bar itself that i dont care for.

so for me, aero STAYS on

I personally find the Aero implementation in Windows 7 to be just about right it's unobtrusive and does not have too much over the top animations as in other GUI's today the working of Aero Peek and the live thumbnails suits the way I work so I am happy to keep it :)

I like AERO

One of the reasons I chose to upgrade to Vista in the first place and then Win7 IS "Vista done right" in my opinion. As someone else mentioned I also have a definite fondness for the libraries, they make my life simpler.

Of course as we here on the forums know.....To each their own....amen.
