Lean,clean and no more green.What's not to like.I believe Impulse is finally hitting it's stride.Despite early glitches,(of which I had none), Impulse is gaining momentum.You're certainly moving in the right direction.Keep up the good work.

Looking very good Frogboy. 

If you make so you like, how could we not like it.

Like Wizard and WebGizmos I have not experienced any problems with Impulse that were not minor or operator error.

Looking forward to when these new changes and updates take effect.

I like Impulse. But I do have a few problems with it. On my XP rig, it starts, hangs, and freezes. I have to go into the task mgr. to kill it, then I restart it and no problems. On my Vista rig, I have to right click it and choose run as admin. Other than that, awesome stuff!

Cool. I hope y'all are looking into this minor problem of updating WindowBlinds. For about 3 or 4 updates/versions now, I've been having trouble getting the software updated. Every time I updated and rebooted, it wants to install the WB services, and then another reboot. But after that reboot, it wants to reinstall the service AGAIN. Even if I tried to cancel it, it wouldn't get past this. I hope that either WB or Impulse is fixed, tweaked, or whatever... so that I don't have to go through that issue. I didn't have that kind of trouble before. But it's been a long time since remembering when that last happened.

WebGizmos turn off the fast start and that problem will stop! [open the Stardock Orb!]

I like impulse and since the fast start feature was added my main complaint about it being slow has lessened. Keep up the great jub guys. Since I'm not a skinner, I would like to see different skins available for impulse or a way to recolor, so we can have a change now and then.

Anything to make a great product better is good in my book. I echo the sentiments of many on here in saying I've never had any problems with Impulse.

Did that...which is funny...turn "off" the fast start to make it start fast.
