What's New in Windows Vista
The following design changes have been made to window frames in Microsoft Windows Vista:
- The Aero theme file makes it easy for Windows Vista developers to bring the Windows Vista User Experience design into their applications. The design and functionality of Aero-themed applications will appear to be an extension of Windows Vista. This creates a consistency within the Windows Vista environment that puts users at ease and increases their confidence.
- Glass window borders and surfaces form a striking aspect of the new design of Windows Vista. These translucent surfaces make an open, less intrusive presentation of windows, displaying users’ content and functionality as the most important element on the screen. Glass provides a professional and beautiful look, being lightweight, new, and exciting.
