I like this mainly because of the extra options for the Vista screen savers. I knew about these before, but I wasn't going to go out of my way to enable them..I mean, I'm not a much of a screen saver person. Overall this is a nice little tweaker. Ill be interested to see where it goes from here.

Thanks solardog.

Me, too. I'm not a fun of screensaver.
But according to my study. Most of the vista users, I've encountered (Not nerds)
They love the screensaver of Vista. That's the first thing that they have noticed before
buying their laptop in stores.

WinBubble is focused on what the users want. Not for the nerds but for ALL.
Same with my blog.

The next version will have more customizations. Version 1.5
