This afternoon i did a complete reinstall (on another machine) and did 
NOT get turbopoweriprodsgn. I did get TurboPowerIPro by default.
(And i guess Waldo didn't get it either by default)

I did a complete new install with fpcup.
(Or is that the problem? Is that not the BigIde?)

I don't know if the color used to be different. I did notice the color 
of the TurboPowerIProDsgn is somewhat more yellow (and thus more 
visible). And it indeed does look a lot better with more options.

But the old text hint window doesn't have a border. And it does take its 
color correctly from the theme which as it should be (clInfoBk). 
Although the real hints, from buttons etc., are taken from the theme 
itself and can't be overridden. The personalize tooltip should only be 
used for Classic and Basic themes but somehow clInfoBk does also get 
that color in Aero theme, but only for that text-window. For the other 
button-hints etc. the color is white-gradient with border (according to 
theme-standard which is correct). I guess the old text hint does not do 
Themedrawing by default (otherwise it would also be white-gradient with 
a border).

(But if TurboPowerIProDsgn becomes/is default the old text hint windows 
shouldn't mater anymore)
