    Ha. I was just about to post about this. The entire batch of software can be had for $15 and a portion goes to the charities of Girls Inc, and Girls Who Code. Of course you can always choose a different charity.

    But why? Completely unnecessary with Windows 10.

      Yes. I looked down the list, there wasn't anything that I'd call useful or essential in the list.

      It is a nice bundle if you like adding furry dice to your PC.

      A couple of visual effects nabbed from 2003 era Linux that still haven't made it to Windows, but long since out of fashion again on Linux.

      Everyone has different wants/needs.

      Some people REALLY want more old-school Start menus. Some people want tabbed applications. Some people may even want what Fences provides. Also, FWIW, I have 2 family members who rely on ObjectDock to ween themselves from their Mac addictions.

      Finally, Window Blinds serves the same purpose in Windows 10 that it has for decades: there's no bundled theme creation tool in Windows. Useful? No. Neither are custom automobile paint jobs, yet there are people who pay for them.

      There will always be die-hard tinkerers, and StarDock is their friend. It's not for everyone, but for the few it serves it's darned good they exist.

    Wait, StarDock is still alive? Is that still a thing?

      On one level, funny. Sarcasm.

      On another, yup, lots of Windows 10 users who just don't like the Windows 10 UI. Also, it seems StarDock's Groupy will be the exclusive way ever to get tabbed applications.

      On a third, credit to MSFT for still allowing Windows to be customized in this way.

    I still use StarDock Fences. Keeps my Desktop clean and it just works.

    I use Groupy and Fences. Fences works fine, but beware of Groupy: it is very buggy.
