Foryears, power users have been customizing their Windows desktop byapplying skins, themes, icon packages, wallpapers, widgets, etc.
To the new user, the number of steps in order to achieve acompletely new desktop has often discouraged them from getting intoit. How do they get their normal desktop back if they want? Whatprograms are free and what programs aren't? Do I have the latestversions of the various programs?
The answer for most users to those questions has been Stardock's popular desktop enhancement utility suite, Object Desktop.
But now, there's an alternative choice for users who want to apply aparticular theme they see and like without having to worry about thesoftware at all. It's called MyColors.
MyColors allows users to purchase individual themes. The themesthemselves contain information as to what software they need to run andMyColors automatically provides the user with the appropriate versionsof the software they need to use it.
To ensure there are enough themes of interest to users, Stardock hasteamed up with the NHL, the NCAA, NBA, GM, Ford, and many others tocreate themes for everything ranging from the Corvette Desktop to theBoston Celtics. In addition, dozens of totally original themes havebeen created as well and more hundreds more are on the way (there'ssome big announcements coming up).
Later this year, MyColors is expected to be pre-loaded on severalmajor OEM PCs (though Stardock cannot publicly disclose who they areyet).
To celebrate the official launch of MyColors 2008, Stardock isproviding a free theme on the MyColors website so that users can tryMyColors for themselves. It is compatible with WindowBlinds and ObjectDesktop.
