I just consider myself inordinately lucky to have Vista work as it 
should(versus how it does) when I
do install it.  Of all odd coincidences, I have had slightly more issues 
with XP.

As for the bling, can't you disable the Themes service in XP similar to 
how Server 2003 does it?
That won't take care of all of it, but it certainly drops the decorations.
