    I'm still planning on what to add, and how I'd go with the programs... maybe an SAO style submenus, but I don't know if I can create icons that will fit... XD... plus I cannot change the taskbar, at least IDK how or if it can even be done in VB...

    There is a windows 7 theme editor which can replace all visual assets of the windows 7, but take note, dont fiddle around with control panel background, I managed to corrupt my account data that way. xD

    Well you could draw your own icons and the is programs for it (in regards to boxes) like RocketDock which you can then use to design your own widget with. There is also a program to hide icons until that part of the screen is selected or hovered above.

    It's that time of year where it's not yet warm enough to bust out my summer desktops, but also not time for Winter, either.

    It's in Hebrew. Schoolwork and stuff. It's just there so I won't forget about it.
    Yeah, I'm interested to see what they pull off. Would be nice if they tried to make an RTS. :D
