Windowblinds

Anyone use it? I can't find shit for themes that doesn't require sketchy patching to Windows system files and I'm tired of the default look.

I used to, and then the magic of having weird colours on my desktop went away.

I use Windows Royale theme.

I only ever used the hacked uxtheme.dll shit. Windowblinds wasted a lot of resources and all the skins I found were either ridiculously bad or entirely too bloated for what they accomplished.

'Course now I just use Aero 'cuz fuck it.

What OS, XP?

Yeah, Windowsblinds is kinda bleh... Actually I forget the point of Windowsblinds. Is it easier skinning or something?

XP Patch:

7 Patch:

Or
http://uxstyle.com/ (never works for me though) Patch free!


And look on Deviant art. I used to use this:

On XP, I used to use WindowBlinds to get a mock Aero theme, but once Vista came out I just switched to it and stopped caring...

Now on Win7 I just use the new awesome default Win7 version of Aero.

Whenever I go back to XP though, I use either the Zune XP theme or this "Dark Matter" theme.
