Finally a nice Aero that consumes virtually no resources and returns all the gloriness before the "flat" fashion:

I say that anyproduct that I require to use "patches" to recover what I had before is doomed, so Win 8 still a fail for me, is just that some users are kind enough to do the patch :D

so you meant to same, everything should be done by MS only?

Assume Windows 8 provides Aero feature and someone writes a mod to disable it and you like it. The concludes Windows 8 is doomed?
Yes, I agree that Windows 8 still needs much refinement, doesn't mean it's doomed. You can make it better by using it not by ignoring it

Arceles, can I ask what Download Upload meter app you have running in the taskbar? Looks cool and can't find what it is.

Nice project btw, it's a shame MS didn't include Glass as an option in registry.

It applies to everyone, just as the PS3 removing Otheros for example. It's the action, not the fact that MS does it or not.

@ Squuiid, the up down meter is  http://www.floriangi...etspeedmonitor/, enable compatibility mode for it to work, besides that there is no problem on win8.

Did you go to this URL and enter your machine code? I was under the understanding that once you did it automatically generated you a registry file to download and merge

Can you no longer merge .key files in Windows 8? The only other thought that occurs is to pop it in the folder with the DLLs but I presume you've already tried that?

Idkw if it's opensource but it shows a popup everytime on startup and you can disable those popups by adding a license key file which I got quite a few of after a donation ;)

oh
 
you should keep yourself some licenses
 

No, it cannot. License is dependent on your CPU model and your HDD/SSD. License can be used only on the computer which it was generated for. However, everyone gets at least two licenses to be used as you want - you can use the second license for the different computer and leave it for the future upgrade of your PC. When you upgrade your HDD or CPU, you will need new license. The license stays same when you upgrade other hardware.
