If you weren’t aware, Microsoft’s Windows Vista has all of four different standard UI “themes” you can choose depending on your graphics card’s ability and amount of system RAM. Someone was bored enough to take screenshots of all four UIs and post them for a comparison.
Which one looks the best? We’ll have to say Aero Glass, thanks to its transparency and general eye-candy abilities. We’re not too fond of the Vista Standard and Vista Basic, since it’s just a non-transparent, less cool looking version of Aero Glass. We’ll sacrifice the system resources for a of extra bling. You’ll have to judge for yourself though.
