look. two old skins its Windows7 and Broken Aero. so people download them till this time not because all download it, and counter display big numeral values. its just because most of all people love brands. Aero and Windows 7 good advertised names, If I call skin for example "YoKLMN" may be 2 or 3 cool guys will download it for fun, but nobody else. So if call skin with well known brand, 90% probability that skin will be good downloadable. But good downloadable skin not means good skin.
I'm for example not see how many times people download my BrokenAero skin, and big values of this don't make me happy. But I always like to read comments like "-My 2 friends install WindowBlinds only for using of this skin" or "Finally! I was waiting for this for so long." or "-This is definitely my new favorite skin". It's I think more important than stars or counter
