This's great news :) Since we're on the subject of compatibility.. I had since ditched WindowBlinds in favour of TopDesk as your program is so much more useful.. however, has there been any inroads towards getting WindowBlinds Window borders to appear during flip/expose mode? *crosses fingers*

There ought to be ways to accomplish this as Startdock's own WinFX app, if I remember correctly, can 'scale' their transparent window drawn borders. Perhaps there's an api that can be shared?

I know this would be going way above and beyond the call of duty but, I'd think there'd be so much crossover between the customization community and an app such as TopDesk. Also, think of the cross exposure for both. *crosses fingers*

Frogboy seems to be a nice chap over there at Wincustomize/Stardock perhaps a simple inquiry would reveal nice folks who'd be more than willing to share coding compatibility techniques?


I suppose I'm just ever hopeful that there'll come a day I won't have to choose between the two programs :)

EDIT: especially when stardock keeps enticing us with stuff like: next version adds blur effects (vista style) to XP

Thanks for humoring these kind of requests though, truly a professional team you have over there.
