Please do not upload any screenshots of Windows Vista using the Basic UI, unless demonstrating the different Vista user interfaces. Themodernizer 22:36, 20 October 2006 (UTC)

Whatever, man. This article isn't about the user interface, this is about the firewall MMC console, which is amply demonstrated by the screenshot, and looks and works the same regardless of theme. Vista Basic -is- the Vista theme for quite a number of machines. If you want to upload an equivalent image using the Aero Glass theme, feel free to do so, but don't remove images from the encyclopedia that adequately demonstrate what's being discussed in the article in question. -/- Warren 03:40, 21 October 2006 (UTC)
p.s. if non-default themes offend you so much, why didn't you remove the -first- image in the article, which is a screenshot of Windows XP SP2 with the Classic theme, hm? -/- Warren 03:41, 21 October 2006 (UTC)
Just an observation: Aero Glass isn't even the default theme for Vista anyway. If you install Vista on a PC with a graphics card that can be used with Aero Glass, it still defaults to Vista Standard. You have to MANUALLY change it to Aero. If you don't have a graphics card that is capable, Vista Basic is the default theme. In any case, it doesn't matter what theme is in use in the screenshots, as long as the screenshot is illustrating the feature detailed in the article (and is consistent with other screenshots in the same article), then it's perfectly fine.Smoothy 22:16, 12 March 2007 (UTC)
Windows Aero is the default theme in premium editions of Windows Vista if a compatible graphics card is installed. Themodernizer 20:58, 19 March 2007 (UTC)

How about adding some relevant comments or test results? After reading what the windows firewall is, people will surely want to know right away if it is good or not according to their needs. I know there is a whole page for comparisons, but just a few lines about its advantages and disadvantages would be very appreciated.190.100.246.23 (talk) 11:21, 18 April 2010 (UTC)
