Thread: iPhone Vista

  1. #1
    Cool iPhone Vista
    Im more of a windows fan so i decided to give my iphone that nice vista aero look.
    as you can see i still need to work on changing the labels and such. the windows start menu button brings up launcher, i thought that would be the closest thing to the windows start menu.

    thanks. i hear that alot to but i dont know why people say that. i spend an equal amount of time with macs and pc's and i love pc's alot more. I own a tablet running vista home premium and it has never crashed on me, i have never experianced the blue screen of death, a virus, or any other stereotypical problem. I have expose running on it and yodm3d [a nifty little program that simulates 4 desktops and arranges them in a cube, a cooler version of leapords spaces] also the gadgets function better than the widgets because you can actually keep them running on the desktop and off the side bar. on mac you hvae to press f12 to bring them up and you cant keep them up while working with another app. haha i have my whole desktop tiled with gadgets you cant even see my background.

    I can't put my finger on it, but there is something about Vista icons that's just different. For some reason, I prefer "Mac-like" icons. The best analogy I can come up with is that Mac vs Vista icons is not unlike the looks of the iPod vs Zune

    the difference is that vista uses a theme called "aero" while max os x tiger uses a theme called "aqua"

    I like it, you should incorporate all the apps icons. I am on a PC more than a mac, just because of my line of work.

    I really like this theme,
    and as cool as the start button is,
    I'd just want a normal dock with vista-y icons.
    =D

    I'm a PC guy too, just stuck at XP pro for the moment. I've heard too much about Vista and drivers / stability issues to wanna go there yet. Glad to hear your experience with it is good though ...

    Oh, and when is this theme available? It looks well cool ...

    Forget the vista driver issues. They don't exist. I am running 64 and 32 bit on assorted comps and all my peripherals work well and drivers are available. Also, vista has not crashed since I installed it on it's release date. More than I can say for xp, which was less stable.

    Wow, good stuff. Desktop or laptop machines, or both?

    Sounds good - look forward to seeing it ...

    I can't believe you'd buy an iPhone and make it look like Windows! Ah, the beautiful diversity of the world eh? ;-) (I still think you're mental.)

    You can pull Widgets out of Dashboard and on to your desktop; it's just not an advertised feature.

    This all comes from this site. I didn't discover this.

    1. At a Terminal prompt, type:
    Code:
    defaults write com.apple.dashboard devmode YES
    2. You need to relaunch the Dock for this to work. Type:
    Code:
    killall Dock
    Now, press F12. Grab a Widget with your mouse and don't let go. Press F12 again to un-Dashboard. The Widget will remain, and can be positioned on your desktop. Do the same in reverse to send it back.

    This works a charm.

    Oh and BTW I run Vista on my work machine (only because I have to - we're part of the Vista deployment team at my organisation so we've got to be seen to be the technical leaders) ... and I can't stand it. Explorer is now designed for babies. WTF did they do to Scheduled Tasks? Event Viewer? It's the ultimate dumbed-down OS. It claims to be transparent: nonsense. Window borders are transparent; that's not true transparency. For true transparency, load a bunch of semi-transparent Terminal windows and lay them over each other. Now that is OS-level transparency. Vista crashes on me regularly, is extremely slow when connecting to network shares ... and is just generally incredibly frustrating to use; more so when I come home to OS X which works flawlessly, at all times.

    Oh, and all the Aero features (like the pointless, can't-actually-use-in-any-meaningful-way Windows Key+Tab application switcher) turn off if a non-Aero supported (?) app like a Java applet launches. Huh?!

    Oh, and dual monitor support is just painful. My Mac remembers the location and configuration of every monitor that has ever been plugged in. Vista frequently modifies its monitor configuration on-the-fly; for example, after an unlock, I discover my main monitor's resolution has been switched. Brilliant!

    Don't even get me started about being able to quickly de-dock and run out the door with your machine. I need to plan my life ten minutes in advance with Vista. Mac OS X? Close the lid and go. Literally. Every time.

    But, like I said, diversity and all that...

    yeah how much hacking to you do ..i think i spend more time cancel and allowing than any thing..and you say turn it off..o.k than whats the point..another thing so much crap out there is not as compatiable with vista as to windows..meaning no special install instuctions with xp.and get some processes going on vista and burn a hd dvd beat it crashes.so long story short new comp with vista instantly dual boot xp.and run xp with all the UI of xp/or mac...vista sucks

    and macs rule but wifey allways has it

    ...and that's another reason I love having a Mac at home. I don't have to think about drivers or compatibility ever again.

    A friend recently asked me to upgrade the hard drive in his Toshiba notebook, which of course required a rebuild of XP.

    I went to the Toshiba website and found the page for his model machine. Well, I tried to. There are about 6 variants of the "A100"; do you think any of the suffixes listed on the site were visible on the device? Of course not. So I guess, and get to a download page.

    The download page has 3 separate video drivers to choose from. How the hell am I supposed to know which one the thing has got?! And I work in IT - I've been a Windows specialist for over 10 years, but sadly am not yet bestowed with magical graphics-card-detection capabilities.

    Ditto for the NIC and the audio drivers. Eventually I found them all, but the whole process probably took me about 6 hours.

    A few weeks later, it was running extremely slowly - CPU usage at 80%+ constantly even when idle. He asked me to look at it. I had no idea. Process usage was through the roof but made no sense.

    Long story short, someone at work suggested Process32.exe to have a deeper look. Ah-ha! Hardware interrupts through the roof. So I start randomly uninstalling drivers, hoping the system will try to repair them with a vanilla version. Sure enough, after removal of the hard drive driver and a reboot the problem went away.

    Compare this to a re-install of OS X which I performed on my friend's MacBook after installing a larger HDD:
    1. Insert boot CD.
    2. Create new partition on blank disk using Disk Utility (click ... add ... done).
    3. Click Next about 4 times.
    4. Done.

    Why anybody would choose to inflict the pain of Windows upon themselves at home is absolutely beyond me.

    Rebuilds and driver version nightmares = amen to that. I also work in IT and have done WAY too many laptop rebuilds for (usually real impatient) execs. Dell site is similar to your description - need spoon-bending mind type powers to guess what friggin driver might work out for the graphics card etc. Ugh, bad memories ...

    i am aware of all these problems with vista but for some odd reason it has worked flawlessly for me. so until i experiance ANY of this, i wont consider siding with mac os x. especially after that little stunt apple just pulled on us who have our phones modded. you dont see the windows mobile users having this problem.
