    I dont like any add-ons, i like to stick to the basic (classic) screen, to get the best performance posiable. (for my games)

    Agree!... No extra practical use except appearance customization.

    I like 6809 and 6801 in the other buttons there, but I don't like to change the look of the OS that much or it doesn't feel like the OS. It's like putting a totally different front bumper on your car that makes it look like a totally different car, then more different as you add on things.

    Thanks for the tip. I like the default one for the moment, but probably after a year or so i will start playing around with things more.

    I am surprised at how many people think this way, when it has almost no effect. The add-ons arn't going to be running while your game is maximized. Maybe they take up a tiny bit of memory, but your game isn't going to use all the memory on your computer is it?

    I used this utility this morning, a few things to note, if you don't run it as admin it will come up with errors. Also, I used this utility, and a few minutes later my windows 7 ultimate 64 bit OS became unvalidated and came up with the usual your copy of windows is not genuine...restoring back to the normal explorer icons put my computer back as genuine...
  8. Now why would I want my Windows to look like Ubuntu?
  9. I really do not think changing the look of ANYTHING you own a big deal! We paint our homes,choose window coverings,give our cars added effects---- So really, why bag on a person for changing the desktop of his/her pc? Do you feel that bagging on peoples choice of changing the desktop Is any worse then spending your time nagging them about It?
    Is this truly a big deal to you? If you enjoy arguing about what people do, You should spend that energy addressing this worlds REAL problems. Like taxes,unemployment,children starving,mothers living In a car with 3 kids--- Talking about someone wasting time doing something pointless----LOOK IN THE MIRROR. -peace-
