Windows Customization

Every once a year I tend to return to see whats going on in the world of Windows GUI customization. This week when that time came I was surprised to see all the free tools and applications now available which were previously only available commercially. I also saw the evolution of all the free software that has been around for a while.

One new tool on the market is RocketDock. In the words of their developers "RocketDock is a smoothly animated, alpha blended application launcher. It provides a nice clean interface to drop shortcuts on for easy access and organization.".

The litestep project has also come a long way. The new themes people have created are awesome and the number of themes available is huge. I am having a hard time deciding on what to install and use.
