Having heard that the Windows Transforation Pack has been updated, I was keen to investigate WinFlip, which is part of it.

WinFlip provides the Flip3D facilities that you find in Vista. And… it’s very, very good.

There are other improvements in the Transformation Pack, such as windows transparency, but, to be honest, I’m interested in improving my XP, not just making it look like a Vista copy (and probably bogging it down as well).

I also came across a Start Menu replacement, but wasn’t keen on that either.

Oh, and I’m Beta testing Windows Live Messenger 9 at the mo. It adds Vista style minimise/maximise/close buttons, as WMP 11 does as well. Anybody aware of some simple software that will change this on all windows (and just the buttons)?
