I don't know if you're being serious or just joking but this cracks me up anyways.
Dark GUI as a power saving feature, brilliant!

Maybe on CRT or OLED, but not on LCD, as the light is always on regardless of how much black there is. Even on CRT or OLED the difference would likely be trivial.

Who's Todd? :redface: :rolleyes:

Todd Tanner aka LOC on the forums. He usually takes part in the Podcast.

downloading now, thanks guys.

edit, just fyi rob, from what I have read, the fact that the dektop is now rendered on the gpu instead of in software is the reason why you don't get the "trails" in vista.

Also, one thing that I think is good about vista, is the driver recovery thing. In XP, if say your display driver crashed, you would probably get a BSOD, but with vista, if the driver crashes, the screen goes black for a few seconds, and then your desktop reappears, after vista has recovered the driver.

edit - :laugh:, rob swore, again lol.
