    He meant as in hitting the key that says Print Screen | SysRq that takes a screenshot of your desktop as you see on screen, open paint and hit paste, you can then crop it to your liking...

    If you want Vista, get Vista. Now that SP1 is out, Vista's performance now (just barely) surpasses XP. Not to mention that these modifications don't add the one real reason to get Vista, the Sidebar. I can't use XP anymore because of the lack of Windows Sidebar.

    If you download Google Desktop for XP, it includes a sidebar that you could use.
