Thanks for the complements everybody.

Bender, it's there but perhaps your browser has the page cached. Try doing a refresh and see it that helps.

This program just keeps getting better and better. I aggree with BruB but I think, this is the best freeware app I have ever used. It's gotten to the point that every time I decide to chage a WB skin or WP I have to create a SysMetrix skin so that it matches. My desktop is naked with out it! Thanks Xymantix

In the world of open source programs the word "Free" as in "Freeware" implies no one is paying for it.But if you take a minute and look at the work and effort put into this program to bring it to your desktop,,it is not free.Far from it.It is not Spyware and should be supported by those who can afford it and use it.
