Default I can't believe it took me this long to download this!

So I had downloaded stardock a while back but had heard about windows blinds. I finally downloaded it tonight and got it setup. Its actually pretty easy to use. Anybody else using this? I found this sweet theme to go with my XP backdrop. To bad it doesn't show motion when i'm on a webpage the sides have the whole matrix them with numbers moving down the sides and the loading bar is runs numbers. I thought it was pretty cool. Heres a link to the download if you wanna check it out. If you end up downloading it check out the cursor xp to I found a sweet rotating cursor to match.

Windows Blinds matrix theme

I've used that before when I had XP on my computer. It changes the whole theme of Windows which is neat, but I always seem to run into some minor glitches in the long run. It sort of hinders system performance just bit too.

I installed Windows Blinds once, it was neat up until it ran into conflicts with another program I was using, I wanted the other program a lot more, so Windows Blinds got uninstalled. I liked the theme I was using on it though. Now I just use the XP Royale theme, not so many system resources used and it looks good without conflicting with anything else.

Cool, but a waste of system resources.

Ya its kinda sad when downloading something becomes a project. Cable is so close but yet so far. I may be moving though so i'm still in a toss up about ordering satallite internet.
