What Was Hot….. in 2002

Blast from the past!

Thursday, October 30, 2008 by Island Dog | Discussion: WinCustomize News

Lets take a trip back to 2002 and see what skins were “hot” back then.  I didn’t focus on a specific gallery this time, I just browsed through the timeline and picked some popular skins from back then.  Some I remember, but many I don’t seem to remember at all.

Do you remember any of these?

I wasn't around in 2002, but I have used couple of these.

It is interesting how some skins hold up very well over time.  I wonder if these skinners knew something.

Wow, I like this. This is a good idea of bringing back good old skins. Found me a new SysMetrix skin.

2002?  Skinning?

I was still running Windows Me using Microsoft Plus Themes with the Cougar, Jungle, Space and Aquarium walls!

It's cool though, I got my XP box in 2003 and joined WC that same year.

In 2002, I was using the MS Plus! themes too. In fact, I didn't even get internet access 'till 2006!

Anything by Treetog, Adni18 or Mormegil is just as good now as in 2002!
