Vista 5270 Gradient in Windows 7's Welcome Center?

Postby SonicKnuckles1998 » February 25th, 2017, 7:33 pm

If you view the Welcome Center in Windows 7's Classic theme, you can see that the gradient in the pane at the top is different. No, this is not from Vista RTM, this is actually from Vista 5270. Weird, isn't it?

I bet the gradient is in the shellstyle. The Classic Theme uses a unique Shellstyle, so I suspect they probably just forgot to update it.

...not sure though .-.

I wonder if this same thing happens on Vista too?

I've not seen much of classic on Vista but it probably has the same thing too.
Long live Windows Vista!
