Windows Vista gets skinned

Software developer Stardock released WindowBlinds 6 today. Amongst the new features includes the ability to customize the entire Windows Vista user interface as well as the capability to give Windows XP users the look and feel of Aero (Vista).

CNET.com has taken a look at the new version and highlighted just how close to Vista WindowBlinds can visually bring XP. WindowBlinds 6 can even do the blur effect on XP with superior performance to the same hardware on Windows Vista. Computerworld has pointed out that programs like WindowBlinds force Microsoft to make a stronger case for Windows Vista and in particular Windows Vista Ultimate (which Stardock is also involved with).
