I think it's stupid to pay for something that's free. Patch for me, as well.

I voted for patched uxtheme.dll, although most of the time I use default Luna style (In my opinion, the best).

I see no reason to install a program just to change colors & shapes on the screen.

I'm anti-style I guess... I got classic everything and even the themes service disabled, it's the only way I can stand XP.

Really? I really can't stand the way classic/9x looks. I can't live without a style.

Using WindowBlinds.

I have it not only for it's skinning ability, but also for the fact that you can pin windows on top, roll them up to the titlebar, and minimize them to the system tray.

Also, it doesn't use up that much resources on my comp... 388K memory and 1580K VM right now...

make it a Jpeg... should only be about 500KB then. and the Style doesn't take that much RAM.

Patched UX Theme here, I was anti-Style but got tired of the 9X/ME look so i put on the Luna.. now I use a patched UXTheme.dll.

can get a universal UXTheme Patcher download tool at:
