Well, as I said it is not my stuff, I dont like the all those stuff that winstep adds to the desktop, and I find it a bit harder to customize. I personally use ObjectDock and Rainmeter for my desktop customization. The plus to those two are that those are easy to customize, and a very wide option of choices are there.

Winstep suffers from this part, IMO

Arc, In the mid xp days I used winstep,& I thought then It was a bit heavy. I coupled winstep & stardock. kind of a mess to deal with. are many other customizers generally have the same opinions ??
