I like it. The Windows look a lot more lively now, the 3-d flip is neat (although I hardly ever use it). The sidebar is great and I have a lot of useful things on there. Much better than XP.

Honestly, I don't think it looks like Mac OSX at all, unless I missed an update or something. I haven't used a Mac since July. I love the sidebar too, I wish I used it sooner.

What are the specs?

Specs of my comp?

400 GB HD
3GB RAM
AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual core processor(5600+)
Geforce 6200 Graphics card

I'm not a huge gamer so these specs work fine for me (although i think they are pretty decent xD)

EDIT FOR THE FLIPPERS:

My town is in there.. dont stalk me -.-
