  2. Too tired to critique, but will say I like it. Running it in my XP VM. Just wish the shell skin option would have been included too, but I guess that the twist with this giveaway is: to get the user to “shell out” money for it. lol

    Thanks again GAOTD for another cool (though not going to be liked by some) feature to add to an otherwise mundane XP startmenu. :)

  3. Installed & ran OK in Win 7 x64 (I’m administrator). This definitely has possibilities but it will take some adjusting of it & me. See the videos on the manufacture’s site for info.
