Care to share some more details on what software was used for your setup? Like for the menus in the taskbar and the modded explorer.

True Launch Bar for the menus (or Free Launch Bar), and the file manager is Directory Opus, with a custom setup.

Directory Opus is not the cheapest option out there, but it is fully customizable, and has a lot of features i use, that the standard Explorer lacks.

Did they change up how the Windows Experience Index works? In Windows 7 it's a scale of 1-7.9. Interesting.

What HD do you have?

I appreciate my post is off-topic too, but I do wish that people who post their screenshots followed the guidelines set out in the first post then perhaps it would cut down the number of posts that are just asking for that information. Little bit annoying to find that there's been a new post on the thread and it just turns out to be just someone asking for the theme info and not posting a screenshot!

Hate to go off-topic again, but I just have to say that I agree. Honestly the information parts should be made mandatory and any posts not including it should be either removed or have their content edited out completely and just left with a text explaining why so people learn :p

Thank you.

Weird. It would make sense to go from 1-10 and just update the hardware ratings every release.

Yea they seem to be keeping the same rating rules and just add a higher roof to allow for better hardware. I think my score actually remained the same when I updated to Windows 8 (though it did go up when I updated to Windows 7 as I had the Vista one maxed out for the most part). Might be that the don't want to make people who don't understand it that their computer got worse/slower with the update. Or they want to keep it relatively the same so that you can compare the WEI of two computers even if one is running 7 and the other 8.

My Hard Drives? The picture above in my post isn't my desktop/computer. I quoted @08993. If your wanting to know his/her HD, you might want to quote the original post. But, here you go: My WEI is 6.9 because of my OCZ drive. Everything else is 7.3.

OS: OCZ Vertex 3 120GB

Data: Hatachi 700GB 7200 RPM

Applications: Seagate 1TB 7200 RPM

      Canalys: Global PC market saw 25% YoY growth in 4Q20
      by Paul Hill



      The analyst firm Canalys has reported that the global PC market saw 25% year-over-year growth in the fourth quarter of 2020. The firm classifies the PC market as desktops, notebooks (including Chromebooks) and workstations but excludes tablets which are sometimes used by some in place of a full-blown PC. Total PC shipments in 2020 grew by 11% reaching 297 million units.

      The full-year growth in the PC market is the highest that’s been seen since 2020 and the number of units shipped is the highest seen since 2014. The growth in 2020 was driven by laptops and mobile workstations; they saw a growth rate of 44% compared to 2019. Desktops, on the other hand, were less successful with shipments falling 20% compared to 2019; there were 61.9 million shipments in this segment of the market in 2020.

      In the fourth quarter, the biggest PC vendor was Lenovo which shipped 23.1 million units, in second place was HP which shipped 19.1 million units. Dell came in third place shipping more than 15 million units for the first time ever, Apple was in fourth place shipping 7.1 million units and Acer came fifth with 6.1 million units shipped. Other companies shipped a combined 18.9 million units in the fourth quarter.

      According to Canalys Research Director Rushabh Doshi, PCs have been at the centre of the digital transformation that the world has gone through in the past year due to the coronavirus pandemic. Doshi said that going forward it’s going to be “extremely difficult” to write off PCs and that it’s likely that they’re here to stay.
