AeroTime 1.0b9 (Formerly AeroVista) Released!

AeroTime is a WindowBlinds skin and not a transformation pack so it won’t change your icons, sounds or cursor themes and it doesn’t come with any 3rd party applications. It is however the best WB theme that you will find if you want the Vista look on your XP system. It will give you transparency and blur and is a lot more stable than any other aero emulator, namingly Vystal, TrueTransparency, FastAero.

You can download WindowsBlinds here. And even though the enhanced version is not free, at $20, it’s a lot cheaper than buying Vista or a new system and you will be able to keep the software and hardware compatibility that XP offers all while enjoying the Vista look on your XP!

The following screenshot shows AeroTime 1.0b9DW with the taskbar at top and fixed orb. It also shows the new Vista like chekmarks for menus which are not perfect but still acceptable. I know, they are too much on the left and the blue square is way too small!!! XP limitations… Sorry!

TIP: You do have the option to use the Vista checkmark by itself (which is centered) or the XP style one used in previous betas of AeroTime. They can be found in the extras dowload in the skin components folder.

You will also notice the resized maximized button as well as new taksbar grippers.
