Actually, there are two versions of Vista Home, and Aero isn't included 
in Home Basic but is in Home Premium.

This video may help clarify purchasing options among the 16 different 
versions of Windows Vista:

As for other info, the import snapshot command is broken on OS X too (it 
actually works, but provides no feedback for the user, no shaded 
selection region.

On the bright side, this is among the very few regression errors in 
v2.8.1.  On the dark side, this is/was a pretty popular feature.

Still praying for a v2.8.2 to address this.....
