Graphics, User Interfaces Last week, Stardock released version 6 of WindowBlinds, their Windows skinning suite, which is the first version to include full support for Windows Vista. Stardock was kind enough to provide OSNews with a copy of WindowBlinds 6.0. Read on for some findings.

The worst thing is that you will read comments like these:

"Thanks man, this is the best skin I've seen so far"

Or people that will say...

"I have been looking for this !! "

I guess that we're outdated ;)

I don't know if we're outdated, but one thing is sure:

most of us OSNews readers see computers as tools to accomplish a certain task, and most of our UI setups (for those who actually use GUIs ;) ) tend to be geared towards productivity and/or comfort. Extreme desktop-modding is "Pimp my ride" with a computer. Crazy looking but absolutely useless, and more than once absolutely ugly.

The smilie in your system tray seems quite apt for that theme
