  • Question

  • I think it's great that lots of the people clamoring for Aero will use their browsers to research global warming.  How many power plants will need to be built just to power all those hungry video cards which will allow users to....um....er....

    What function does Aero allow that can't be done more easily without it?

    It looks to me that making your computer "prettier" will pour another 50 watts into it.  What happens when we multiply that times the half a billion windows machines out there?  A hundred power plants all for nothing.  I am saddened by the perfection of marketing.

    (And yes, I run Vista but I purposely avoided the requirements for Aero.)
