    Hey guys, sorry about the downtime.

  10. Sharing Configs/widgets

  12. Widget Wars!

    I suppose I should say a few words I have to be honest; I haven't even tried most of the applications that are being discussed here; I barely have enough spare time to make Samurize configs for myself heh. Though I did fire up AveDesk 1.0 and was impressed with its potential (I say "potential" because I think a lot of things I didn't like about it were fixed in 1.1) I can of course comment on what others have samid about Samurize:
  13. Samurize Popularity

    Also Aquasoft seems to be the home of AveDesk - any sports fan knows it's not easy playing games away from your home ground No surprise that AveDesk receives a lot of support here :smartass:
  14. Samurize Popularity

    You might think so, but I think AveDesk is a great app as well (this isn't the first time I've said this) Some people prefer prepackaged widgets, that's great and I completely understand that (I can be lazy at times too )
  15. Samurize Popularity

    It all depends on what you want out of your desktop, really... I'm no AveDesk expert but that program seems more geared towards prepackaged widgets where you can tweak a few things like colours, images etc. Samurize is about complete customizability - you can put whatever you want whereever you want it etc. but at the cost of ease of use I guess. In fact with the latest Samurize releases you can do almost anything that is possible with AveDesk in Samurize (the few exceptions being user actions; Samurize does not yet have an input SDK but it is in the pipeline). Also Samurize is primarily a system monitoring tool; but the demands and ideas people have placed on it have malformed it into more of a desktop enhancement engine than a system monitor. Just my 2c
