Initial Impressions of Windows Vista - Slick

I've now been running Windows Vista for about 48 hours. While the upgrade took a while to complete, my initial feeling is that I love Vista.

I'm running this puppy on my Dell Inspiron E1405, so it's got the juice and power to run the Aero interface. Several things are changed, but I'm adjusting well.

With that said, one thing that does bug me is the sidebar. I just don't get how it can be useful. Maybe I'm missing something, but the gadgets are little more than eye candy. They look spiffy, but they just take up space. Is there a way to make them smaller? If they were half the size, I might like it. Otherwise, I won't be using this thing long.
