Sorry. I let my OD subscription expire after being unable to use for the better part of six months while I waited for 64-bit Vista support on OD. Support couldn't help, suggesting that I contact sales, who didn't even bother to reply. So much for customer service.

They're excellent at customer retention, too. I asked them if there was a re-subscription discount and they replied "No." (exact word) and turned my access off the next day on schedule. I bet they have an orifice they can shove that "No" into.

There is a renewal discount for Object Desktop, I'm not sure why someone would have told you "no".

In 2008, people will be able to run a pretty damn solid desktop OS in Windows XP SP3 and this for the looks, instead of Vista... Should be interesting... I think it'll also bring pretty much indistinguishable Aero Glass effects to Vista Home users cheaper than purchasing Vista Premium, so if that's what you're looking for, and little else (thanks to free / open source replacement software perhaps), well...

You can now selectively choose how transparent the Vista glass effects can be using sliders for all aspects of the desktop. Have to admit, it`s pretty cool
