  1. Great blog, thank-you.
    I can’t wait to get vista, I see there are some trail versions or something floating around but I will wait until it is officially released.
    For now I have found a few vista wallpapers at and have made my desktop look real nice.
    I found a set of icons also, which should be good to use.
    Keep up the great blog Bobby!
