    personally, i quite like aero glass. or perhaps vista basic. i like curves, and classic is just too blocky for my liking.

    You can have gui's in Linux that are the equivalent of Aero in Linux without them being resource hogs. Linux uses XGL to acheive the same effect without using all the resources. I run Debian which lags in the "pretty things" department somewhat but I have transparency out of the box on my desktop and I'm running graphics hardware that is probably at least 4 years old. I'm running a Radeon 7000 with 64 megs of ram on a Chaintech board. It's definitely not cutting edge hardware, yet if I were to put the effort into building all the packages from source and reconfiguring all my video settings I could have all the aero effects on this computer without bogging it down. I just don't consider bells and whistles to be a big deal.

    This is all pretty much available with a small amount of effort in Ubuntu. There are several Ubuntu tutorials on setting up the Aero effects with XGL, and they have been in place for around 6 months or so.

    Ye I started with SuSE back on version 7 and followed that distro all the way but now I use mostly Gentoo and Ubuntu.

    I love Gentoo for how customisable it is, but its easy to customise.

    And I love Ubuntu because of its "out of the box" workability (is that a word?)

    Never really used Debian (apart from ubuntu which derives from it)

    I like the Aero version, if anyone wants the classic version there's always Windows 2000 that's not resource hungry :D Anyway it gives me an excuse to upgrade my hardware :biggrin

    But from a Business point of view, another headache :(
