The Most Popular WindowBlinds Skin of All Time!

Thursday, November 21, 2013 by Island Dog | Discussion: OS Customization

Since we’re spending this month celebrating 15 years of skinning WindowBlinds, I wanted to find out what was the most popular download on WinCustomize.com.  From the best I can tell and confirm, Vista Plus Version 3 comes in with over 900,000 downloads since it was released in 2006.

Vista Plus Version 3 by adni18

It’s a little funny a Vista skin has been one of the most downloaded, but as some of you might remember the glassy look was really popular and many skinners created a bunch of skins with that look during that time.  This was a skin that was designed to be used on XP to get that look, and as with all of adni18’s skins, he did a remarkable job at creating this style.

Nikos's been around since Adam was a pup......he knows his stuff.

If there were a level beyond 'Master' he'd be on the short list....

This means that you are going to enjoy the foot a lot, because I drink Sambuca as digestive...

What about a good Greek tsipouro (similar to grappa)?

Those were the good old days.  Adni has a couple in the top ten and holds the record for most downloads for windowblind skins.
