well other than the zune theme i'm just not seeing any of these to be that helpful...especially cause i'd hate for my pc to look like a mac =/
Well IMO SOme of these are pretty useful. But I agree with the  last phrase. WHo would want their PC to look like something that does less, for more cash?
Whats with the mac hating. Everything windows 7 can do mac has been able to do for years, also most of the items in this able mac can do out of the box.

Just try one with an open mind, you would convert. (oh and get a second job)
have you tried this one? youtubedownload.altervista.org/ I like it better, it's small, but works everytime I hope you want to check it out
