Graphics, User Interfaces "Windows Vista has finally arrived! Many people have been asking us what are Stardock's plans? What can we do to take an excellent new OS like Windows Vista and make it better? There have been a lot of articles on how users of Windows XP can get a lot of the visual benefits of Windows Vista using Stardock Object Desktop. And while that may be true, Windows Vista provides us a whole new canvas of cool things we can do."

hahah. They're always horrible. Fortunately even fewer 'normal users' have heard of StarDock than have heard of Linux so you don't see many of these ugly schemes being used.

Look at this crap:
http://www.wincustomize.com/skins.aspx?skinid=6005&libid=1
- Count the fonts used
- Count the colours used
- Why do you need to see how much ram and space on your drives you have?
- Why do you need to see a graph displaying processor usage?
- Read the funny comments: 'This is ROCKING!!!!!!!
This is awesome!
Wicked thank you'
- It even comes with a free game... it's called spot the mouse pointer.

Maybe MS wants to do the world a favour and made Vista slow so that nobody even considers using this software. :-)
