There are many cases, but the DVD inside all of them is the same DVD. The serial you enter determines what licensed version of Vista you'll have installed... Windows Vista Ultimate is the ultimate license.

Of course, this is all one big money squeezer. I spent a couple of hours just disabling features through Service Manager, Group Policy Editor, and various other places with hidden settings.

Windows Vista's desktop icons make it look like Windows for Retards.

FB icons are changable ffs... it's not a thing to dismiss a system for....
Anyway I had some fun with vista a few days ago, and apart from the fact that none of my players worked and stuff, and the drivers where all buggy (Ati card, at my cousins) it was awesome Quite cool was the fact that it didn't worked slower, actually it uses almost the same amount of resources as XP, and you can, as with XP strip it from all the fancy graphics to make it look like the old crappy windows, the only downside I found was that it takes up to 5 gb...

One of the cool things is the Games Explorer. It's like the ultimate fronted for everything.

My new and improved Desktop:


You'll think I'm weird but this is *actually* a lot better now. Even when browsing the web and doing other stuff. I think it suits the 1280x1024 resolution.
