Stardock's Tiles Beta for ODNT Subscribers
Tiles works by taking advantage of the wider aspect ratios of today’s desktops. On the right side of the screen, a page of tiles is displayed. Users may have multiple pages that they organize as they see fit or make use of several sample page filters such as displaying only active windows or only web pages. Users can then switch between pages either by clicking on the page title or on touch systems by sweeping their finger across the page to “turn the page”.

WindowBlinds 5.5 Officially Released!
Stardock released WindowBlinds 5.5 today.  WindowBlinds is a program that enables users to customize the look and feel of the graphical user interface of Microsoft Windows.  By applying "skins", WindowBlinds can change title bars, borders, push buttons, scroll bars, the taskbar, the Start menu and virtually every element of the Windows environment.  Thousands of different skins exist and can be created using a free program called SkinStudio.
WindowBlinds 5.5 is a major update in that it is the first program to allow users to change the look and feel of Windows Vista.  Thanks to a new technology called "SmartSkinning", WindowBlinds allows skins created for Windows XP to be used to skin Windows Vista.  WindowBlinds 5.5 then transforms the skin, on-the-fly, to conform to the new user interface conventions of Windows Vista to give it a distinctly Windows Vista look and feel.  Users of  .msstyles files on Windows XP can u

Windows DreamScene - Animated Wallpaper
As Microsoft just announced, one of the first Ultimate Extras (extra features users of Windows Vista Ultimate can download) is a new animated wallpaper feature called "Windows DreamScene".
Windows DreamScene is an animated wallpaper technology that plays high-definition video content as your wallpaper. The key ability of it is that it can do so without using significant amounts of CPU (basically the decoding of the video is the only real CPU use involved).  The animation itself is run through the hardware accelerated DWM.
Windows Vista Ultimate users will be able to download additional content through Microsoft as well as through a new site called The site will include new content, tools, and enhancements to Windows DreamScene.
