I am not happy here. I used to use Desktop X a long time ago with Windows XP. I stopped along with many others because Stardock screwed everyone over. I just paid for the (not so complete?) Object Desktop collection, only to find that it is a subscription. I got scammed. They never said anything about a subscription anywhere, until after I paid for it. Imagine buying a car, and then finding out after you buy it that you have to give it back after a year? And now, I've had to pay another subscription here just to download anything. I posted in the Stardock forum asking how to do what this software is supposed to do like the old days with .desktop themes and widgets/gadgets, only for an employee and admin to ignore my simple question and try to make me pay for even more (Object Dock?). An employee and a moderator tell me completely different stories. They tell me they are going to bring in more employees to answer such a simple question. Then, while I wait, I'm suddenly blocked from responding further! I had a friend read their bizarre responses in the thread, and he said 'refers to a program that doesn't exist with no explanation on where it is (or what it does)'. So here I am, asking again... how does one make/use a custom interface like the old days with docked tools on your desktop? So far, I've paid a subscription of about $60 only to find completely useless software that does what Windows already does by itself. I can do more with a simple batch file.
