I can't remember when I first tried Windowblinds. I really never was into skinning Windows. Don't get me wrong. I always thought it was cool and very imaginative. For years I was a so called, "Power User" so I was always tearing down or getting rid of any unnecessary resources that slowed down my system. Kind of like a gear head for windows. If I could just get a few more ticks on the speedometer or tach I was happy. It was why I went from Windows 3.1 to 3.11 for work groups. Windows 7 was the first time I cared less about squeezing every ounce of speed and went with ( lol voice to txt anesthetics) anesthetics namely aeroglass.
