Vista? We Don Need No Stinkin Vista

For those of us who see no compelling reason to upgrade to Vista, at least until it's time for brand spanking new machine with at least 4 Gigs of memory and graphics power out the wazoo, and are quite happy with XP, thank you very much, there are small programs that allow us to have some of Vista's more attractive eye-candy. For example, there's a little app called Visual Tooltip 2.1. With Visual Tooltip running, you get a nice thumbnail view of your minimized windows when you mouse-over them in the taskbar (the thingie that sits at the bottom of your screen). Here's what it looks like.

Why go through the hassle and cost of a Vista upgrade? If it ain't fixed, don't break it. You can get all the love with little apps like Visual Tooltip! Get it here.
