This may be a daft question, and I apologise if its been done to death. But why does no-one here seem to use windowblinds? I adore WB. It's so easy to change the way my desktop looks. More importantly for me, there are often matching skins for the other two apps I use most often - ICQ (with icq plus) and winamp. It's also supported by Microsoft as the way to change XP's appearance and doesn't require changing dlls or anything.
