Is this worth it? Vista Transformation Pack

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I've been considering downloading the Vista Transformation Pack at http://www.windowsxlive.net/?p=1473 (here's a more detailed page where you can also download it), and I'm wondering if it's worth it. I mean, with my sig rig, might I have any problems?

Also, will I feel like reformatting if I use the pack and then uninstall it?

And will the "fixed driver" cause any problems on my sig rig?

I had a vista transform pack and it made everything look pretty but I dont think it was worth it. I ended up having some issues with my graphics. This was on my old P4 with a Geforce 6600 though.

Just buy Vista, it'll work better than that "skin"

ok, well it sounds to me so far like it's not worth it...

I run it on my office machine (which has to be the stablest machine that I have), and it is completely trouble-free.

What I worry about is that Intel Graphics driver. I'm perfectly happy with the nVidia graphics driver. I also worry about how it refers to changing the BIOS or something. I don't know, maybe I'll just have to do some major hunting on some good XP themes if I want a new look so badly.

It's just that I've had this sig rig for about 12 days now, and I want to change the way everything looks and feels just for fun. I already changed my wallpaper from None to this really nice 3D one. I just used the default desktop color with the Silver XP color scheme, and went with no wallpaper.
