This is probably completely old to a lot of you, but I just noticed WindowBlinds 6 is out!

It was released 2nd October, and supports both Vista and XP.

Here's a screenshot of my XP PC right now.

Blurring in XP is pretty cool, no aero light-rays on window borders though, so it doesn't pass off as Vista RTM.

Nope, I was actually quite amazed - my computer is going a lot faster than it did when WindowBlinds 5 was installed, here's taskmgr ordered by Memory usage - I can't even tell which process WB6 is:

It's normally incorporated into explorer.exe, my explorer.exe was using about 20mb before I installed Windowblinds 6, now uses about 60mb-70mb

I used to use WindowBlinds (4 + 5) but I had a slower PC at the time... might retry it some day... depending on how much RAM it likes to eat up :P

I am a dextopx freak myself. I have always neglected to use windowblinds due to the memory resources. but version 6 only adds about 1 meg to my explorer. so no prob and is very quick where it used to be slow on drawing graphics before even with a good video card.

windowblinds 6 doesn't have a process in the tradition sense. it just loads its server dll (wbsrv.dll) on boot.
