[My Computer]

This has a very simple look. One thing you may notice is the huge icon. Microsoft is experimenting with vector icons for Windows Vista. Compare with the badly rendered mIRC icon on the left of the desktop. Apple has attracted a lot of customers with their beautiful icons in Mac OS, so I can see Microsoft is trying to catch up ever since Windows XP. The operating system is a user experience (XP), not just a tool like DOS.

One other thing to notice is the Local Disk bar, letting users know how much space they have used without having to select properties. This bar is also better than a pie chart used in previous Windows versions.
