With the ho-hum looks of Windows 8, I'd think customizing would be very popular now. ;)

They make it harder to do, though. It's no fun anymore.

Seems like the majority of people finally realized (thank God) that using docks,custom icons,rainmeter skins,gadgets etc results in a much worse and bloated desktop.
After vista u dont really need to customise besides maybe the VS.
Thats why most of the customization screenshots here are awful.Its the same people that have always been using bloatware(since the XP days) and they still do.They even managed to make Win8 to look awful, so yeah...

QFT. When you have to jump so many hurdles just to get your themes and shells up and running, the average person who wants to start to customize just gets discouraged.
