Spent some hours to:
- Upgrade from Vista 32-bit to Windows Server 2008 64 bit
- Funky console from http://sourceforge.net/projects/console/
- Neat light-on-dark theme for VS 2008 from Brad Wilson: http://www.agileprogrammer.com/dotnetguy/archive/2006/09/07/19030.aspx
- Chaos Crystal for transparent VS 2008: http://www.elgorithms.com/downloads/chaoscrystal.php
- Desktop background from http://www.framebox.de/creations/3d/disruption/index.htm
Quite happy now, though Windows and VS could be a bit more tweakable… and wish I had well working workspaces like with Ubuntu.
