I just wanted to do another post about holiday skins since there’s only so much I can fit into one post, and we’ve had quite a few new skins and themes submitted recently.

It’s a beautiful day in our digital neighborhood, so why wouldn’t we put everything on sale for the holiday?

No reason at all!

All Stardock software is on sale up to 75% off in celebration of the many celebrations this time of year. No coupons necessary, just pick up whatever strikes your fancy for a lower price than you’d normally pay for it.

Happy holidays, and may your 2015 be as productive and organized as you can stand!

I’m happy to finally announce our newest and last Master Skinner promotion for 2014 goes to neone6!  Neone6 has been a member since 2010, and during that time has shown a real dedication to skinning especially in the WindowBlinds area, but has a wide variety of skins in the galleries.  Andrew brings a unique style to WinCustomize, and has been recommended for promotion by several members of the community, other Master skinners, and fully agreed upon by the staff here at WC.

Take a moment and give congratulations to him, and then take a look at his fantastic gallery here on WinCustomize.  We look forward to seeing what skins you bring us!

At the beginning of the year I posted about a new gaming mouse I picked up.  It was an E-Blue Mazer 2000 which I picked up on Amazon for around $20.  It’s been a fairly good piece of inexpensive hardware, but after a ton of use the scroll wheel was starting to wear down, so it was time for something new.

Around the Thanksgiving holiday weekend Amazon had a bunch of Logitech stuff on sale, so I picked up the Logitech G602 wireless gaming mouse for about $44.  That’s about half off of what it usually retails for, so I think it was a good deal.

Some of the reason I chose this one:

  • Price – As I said, this was a good deal.
  • Brand – I have other Logitech hardware, and they’ve always been good.
  • Wireless – Don’t like the wires.
  • Customizable – You can customize the buttons and functions.
  • Size – It’s a decent sized mouse, which is perfect for me.

The G602 has 11 programmable buttons, and while I probably won’t use but a few, the option is there.

I haven’t been using it very long, but so far it’s been real nice.  It’s comfortable to use for everyday tasks, and it has performed great while gaming.  I still need to mess around with the button programming and see all what I can do with it, but my first impressions are very good with the G602.

I had almost forgotten about this, but I was looking for holiday skins today and there it was!  If you don’t remember or weren’t a member of the site, this was a community project back in 2009 in which several community member coordinated to create this really beautiful suite of various skins.  We’ve done community projects since then, but I think this one was one of the best.

This is the WindowBlinds skin that was the base of the project which was created by Xiandi.

The suite package for Theme Manager was created by Philly0381 and can be found here.

We had many members of the community come together and create this great holiday skin and a bunch of matching skins to go along with it.  It’s too late for a new one for this year, but I’d certainly like to do another community holiday skin again.

You can view the details on the project, and links to all the individual skins here.

Wow, it’s December already and for some of you I hear it’s a pretty cold one as well.  With that being said, this month’s screenshot thread is open and is a perfect place to show off your holiday desktops.  I’ll be featuring holidays skins in the WinCustomize news area, so be sure to keep an eye out for that.

Post your December desktops here:
