Although Windows Vista didn't got that much success as compared to Windows XP, still it has a fairly large user base across the world. The premium edition comes with stylish Aero interface. There are dozens of highly customized skin packs and themes for Windows Vista for all users. Almost all of them are free-to-use and works seamlessly. Some of these skins are based on popular services and products that mimics the original design. You can definitely try out each of these skin packs before deciding for the one you're finally going to use. Before using these themes, I'll advice you to create restore points for added safety. This way, you can easily revert back to your original desktop in case you do not like to stay with the custom skin pack. So, here are some of the excellent and handpicked Vista themes that can add that extra punch in your desktop. If you're using a legacy system with low end hardware configuration, I'll recommend sticking with the native Windows interface instead of quickly using stylish skin packs.
1. AeroVG Theme
This stylish vista theme comes with transparent start menu and task bar, giving totally different browsing experience. AeroVG themes's check boxes and radio buttons are of Apple leopard style giving a mixed Windows and Apple experience.
