    Default Windows 7 Tweaked out UI without any slowdown

    For the past couple weeks I've been goofing around with a little desktop customizing. I've been amazed at how responsive Windows 7 remains when running all this. I've noticed ZERO slow down on an older 2Ghz machine.

    For those interested this was put together using:
    Rainmeter The skins are Evolution and a completely customized Suffix 3.
    Windowblinds 7 The theme is called Tinted.
    Dexpot For the virtual desktops and the "cube" functionality.
    Switcher For the application switching.
    Rocketdock With the Buuf icon sets. I don't start it with Windows anymore, I like the new taskbar better.
    Stand alone stack 2 for the Mac like stacks.
    The background is a fractal created with Apophysis (Not for the impatient!)
    A couple of other obvious tweaks are the centered icons on the taskbar and pinning the recycle bin to the taskbar. Both tweaks can be found on the forums here.

    Dexpot Virtual Desktops (You can just see the cube starting to rotate. Dexpot has several methods of switching desktops and rules for which desktop applications start on. (click image for larger view)


    Rocketdock as the application launcher. (click image for larger view)

    That is a beautiful thing. Almost a work of art. You really put the thought into it. I appreciate you sharing it, it was worth the read.

    Can you attach the wallpaper?

    Thanks for the kind comments. What resolution are you running? I'll make one at the right size.
