Aero Features in Windows Vista

Thank you for the reply.
Actually, I meant...literally backporting the feature to Windows Vista (i.e., without third-party programs). I was hoping that since Vista and 7 are so similar that there would be a way to do it.

explorer and shell would need that thing updated
and 6.1 isn't compatible with 6.0
Isn't there a way to modify the files in 7 for Vista though? I know it sounds silly, but it has been on my mind for almost two months now. I wouldn't mind paying...

That's too bad...
...although I have to admit that this looks pretty good. Thank you for the link.
Have you tried the Vista VS for Windows 7 by fediaFedia? It, too, looks attractive. Thanks to @UltimateSilence for suggesting that one.

or just use the AquaSnap application I mentioned above
I know that some people may not like to use external programs for such things but, really, this one eats less than 1MB of RAM:
and offers actually more functionality than Windows 7 Aero.

windows 7 alpha build 6469, as this was earliest build leaked which explorer.exe used Vista file manager shell
you would have to change its version with PE Explorer and imagecfg if Vista is to even accept it
not sure if such early build had these features of snap's and shake's though
and you would most probably either get random error messages because of win 7 superbar integrated init
to which vista has no calls of it, your skin would probably messed up too since values for skin segments
were changed and some added for new superbar
or OS would simply refuse to even start up explorer at all (test it in Virtual Machine is safest way to see)
but as people told above, better to use tested and safe method of 3rd party app than messing around like this
