Is WindowsBlinds any better yet?

I remember having issues with performance I think, and heard others say it's not very good. I'm tired of the XP look at would like to make it look a little more like Vista possibly. I know there is a way to do it without using WindowsBlinds, but I'm not sure if I feel like doing that.

So, is it worth it to install WindowsBlinds or do you think it's garbage?

No problems at all with it, certainly don't notice any performance hit these days with v5.01 and there are some great news skins out in the last few days...

I just installed it, seems to run fine.

It said "60 days left" though, so does it stop working or just pop up ads when you start up?

I like the Arrow theme, but I found it in one minute. I'll be here all night looking for others.

It'll stop working after 60 days. It's not like before where it would just popup the ad at startup.
