Sometimes, We Won't Want DWM
This is mainly a suggestion directed at the developers of SkinStudio.
Recently, I've created a UIS1 Skin in SkinStudio Classic, And I've added the additional Vista components using SkinStudio 6. Which is all good, however, I've noticed that SkinStudio and WindowBlinds together use the Aero DWM Interface when applying skins.
This is fascinating, because the nature of the UIS1 Skin is to provide compatibility and performance. I don't see the importance, or use of either if the user is forced to use the Desktop Window Manager with Aero. Both are highly memory consuming, and probably aren't worth the efforts of UIS1.
I think a switch should be implemented, primarily in the skin's default specifications (alongside title, author, copyright, category etc.), which specifies whether the theme will use the Aero DWM, or the Classic DWM.
Who's With Me?
(PS: Aero DWM being; Blurring, 3D Task Flip, Taskbar Previews and Per-Pixelness, which uses an average, 40MB of Memory. Classic DWM being similar to Windows XP, providing nothing but the basics. Using an average of 4MB of Memory.)
