WindowBlinds 6.4.100

An update to WindowBlinds is available today bringing it to version 6.4.110. WindowBlinds is an application that allows you to completely change the look and feel of Windows XP and Vista by applying visual styles, also known as skins, that change the Graphical User Interface of Windows. Thousands of skins are available for download on WinCustomize.com, and WindowBlinds is safe to use as it does not alter or patch any system files.

This update brings:

  • Updates for Safari, Skype 4, and IE8 tweaks.
  • Bug fixes
Current users can download this update via Impulse. WindowBlinds is available stand-alone, or as part of the Object Desktop suite of desktop enhancements. A free trial is available and the full version is only $19.95.

"A minor resource hogging effect was one of the chief complaints with WindowBlinds 5.x. We ran several performance tests, both synthetic, gaming, and real-world encoding and rendering tests, with and without WindowBlinds 6 installed, and the results of each test were so close to identical that we're not even going to bother running charts. To do so would be an exercise in redundancy."

:)

WB in general does not slow down anything... and im a techie and verry critically and i do report every bug and thing that isn't ok ;)
Maybe Stardock hates me for this...

WB has bugs like every other app out there, but isn't resource hogging...

Yea, WindowBlinds 7 is going to have a bunch of new things for Aero. Aero is pretty awesome looking.

New things compared to what? It's almost the same as Vista at this point, which is a good thing.

. . .have to agree, and as a Win 7 tester I have yet to see anything that can beat 7' UI; now that not saying there won't be down the road. Oh, for those mac users (myself included) this is a Windows thing.

WindowBlinds is running on Windows 7 internally, and a beta will appear in the next few months. Remember, Windows 7 isn't released yet.

no dream of working on windows 7..they might get around to it by the time windows 8 comes out

Considering that this program has been rendered pretty much POINTLESS AND USELESS since Vista, no harm done.

Im sure many would disagree, as not everyone wants to use Aero on a day to day basis.

Yeah, wow, just look at all the people disagreeing with me. Oh, wait...

But than again not too many are using Vista as it is so your "point" is moot.

Right...most are still running MS DOS 6.22 or Windows 95 right? Most people, especially those that would be interested in a program like this in the first place, are either running Vista or the Windows 7 builds so there's nothing "moot" about my point.
