On the subject of Windows Vista, some good news

I just caught this (shows how busy things have been lately): Paul Thurrott is reporting that the gray, drab, and downright depressing Windows Vista Basic theme (which displays in the absence of the Aero interface) has been replaced with something…well, much better looking:

New Windows Vista Basic theme

Way to go, Vista team! And now, a request: How about a few little glassy streaks through the title area? It doesn’t have to be too elaborate, but a couple streaks up there would look real good. ;)
