Well guys, I have to say to those of you who are afraid DX will slowly die. Maybe if Brad saw some more action in the DX galleries, attention would be paid. I know I'm not the best skinner, and I'm definitely not a coder like David, or sViz, martin, Vadm,etc. But I pretty much own the DesktopX theme library. If more of us would start putting out nice, usable skins for DX, it might get more love from Stardock. Besides the fact that I love DX, my mission has been, and will continue to be, to draw attention to DX as one of Stardock's best programs!
If we don't come up with more skinners using it, it may very well die as you say. And I, for one, would be very unhappy for that!! But there just aren't that many people involved with it. I have no way of knowing how many users there are, but there sure aren't many skinners doing DX these days.
So those of us that want DX to be better, and stay around, let's do something about it. Let's crank up the old DX skinning machines and show Brad and company how much we like DX and that it is definitely second ONLY to Windowblinds.....(oops, did I say that out loud?) DX is much more than eye candy.
Actually, I see very little to windowblinds that isn't just eye candy. DX can do so much more than just look pretty!
OK, End rant.
Chicken or the egg problem. Personally - I stopped working with DX because the development environment was just too awkward and there was - is - all these show stopping bugs. How are you suppose to produce work with a bugged tools?
very interesting to hear the lead dev was shipped into the HQ. Was that Alberto Ricco?
So, is this DX4 version - just some premature alpha? That they are just started reworking it?
