Windows 7: Anybody tired of Aero?

17 Aug 2009   #1

Anybody tired of Aero?

Am I the only one that's kind of annoyed by the Aero GUI as of now? The transparency/blurring is really unnecessary. I think Windows should've gone with a Matte Shiny Plastic visual style, akin to Mac OS X.

W7 64b - Leopard 10.6.2 - Ubuntu 10.10 (MBP Snow Leopard 10.6.3)

If MS imitates Mac OSX style all hell will break lose
The biggest benefit is that it looks good on all wallpapers!
You can always look for new themes...

First thing I do is turn off transparency and transition effects.

Win7 Build 7600 x86

Personally I couldn't care less for looks.

Once I'm working on the machine I don't think about it.

I love the functionality of Win7.

Almost any thing that took me 4 or 5 clicks on XP, (never mind Vista), I can do with 1 or 2 now.

Especially the Libraries are a gift.

Windows7 Enterprise SP1 x64 (Technet)

Aero is the best UI created by Microsoft...

I love the glass effect...

I am not a fan of waiting while Windows 7 does their fading and drop down menus. I want my drop down menus to expand at once. I don't want screens to fade in and out - just do it. However, I cannot find where to make those changes in Windows 7. Can anyone help.
