Yup.  I'm being freshly reminded how painful XP is, with the bling that
you can't disable and assorted management settings obfuscated and tucked
away in hard-to-find places.  Tracking down the interface settings and
setting for performance-over-shiny helps.  But there's still way too
much bloat and bling and unnecessary space-wastage in the interface.

And then I remember that Vista is WORSE.  WTF was Microsoft thinking?
