Most of you like all the functionality in Windows Vista, but we are not upgrading because of all the problems Vista gives us. So, why not use these tools in XP?

I created a software package that you only have to download, unzip it and import in Symantec Workspace Virtualization.

When you activate it, you have a windows Vista sidebar. This sidebar is enabled to use the latest Vista Sidebar gadgets even in Windows XP.

The complete download can be found on

Also you can search on Google for Vistamizer because there are several more that use this sidebar also.

In the taskbar you see an icon appear and there you can customize your sidebar.

The sidebar starts automatically after activating the package.

We are staying on XP for another year, then jumping direct to Win7.  This will allow me to provide some Vista experience to the masses.
