I only have a small problem, which isn't really a problem, more of just an annoyance. When you drag a window around in Server 2008 R2, it just shows a outline, much like Windows 98. Here's a screenshot demonstrating what I'm talking about. I'm using the Desktop Experience feature, and Aero is turned on. Anyone know a way to fix this?
