Tops for me among Widgets is the Animated Weather Satellite and Radar by Will Rose. In fact the Desktop X Object is a very complete Weather System.

I also like the Core Widgets by Mormegiel but sadly they don't all work with the current version of DX2.

As far as Wblinds my absolute favorite is an old blind called Tactile by Grayhaze (wish he'd update it) but I'll try almost anything by Essorant or Z71. But to be truthful I use my own more than any others. Is that vanity?

Iconpackager would have to be Glass Folders by APB. I use red the most but I have all flavors.

Don't use boots, or logons. I do lke the Matrix_Ks screensaver by Kelleysoftware (also in red)

i81b4u-uc: I also have many favorites. Not sad - nice to have a variety!

-OZZY-: Nice screenshot! Can't wait until you make it available.

Lantec: Thanks for sharing. I assume you use your own most because you made it to have all the elements you wanted, right? Not vanity, just practicality. People like me rely on those of you with talent and ability to help us out!

Thanks for the plug....... =] I would have to be partial and biased and say that I like my wallpaper amongst those that I see

-OZZY-: Thanks! Sorry if I missed is before, I'll check it out now.

Green Armani: You are welcome! I'm always in awe of people who can make this kind of stuff.

Thank you for including Retro in your screenshot Cordelia. I have to confess it's stayed on my own desktop for a while (since even before I posted it). That GT3 though - it's a fine skin and no mistake.

Well I had posted my list on your other choices topic, guess it got buried somewhere or something. This list is only comprised of windowblinds themes though, haven't gotten around to the rest of the stuff (wallpapers, cursors, bootskins/logons). I just have so many installed it's quite insane.

The list: Link

Bebi: Thanks! I haven't seen some of the stuff you have up on your page, so I'll have to spend some time checking them out. Very cool! (Sorry I haven't responded sooner. I've been out of town.) I can'think of anything better to do with my Friday than to check out some cool skins I haven't seen yet!
