Object Desktop 2009 is a suite of desktop enhancement utilities that can completely transform the Windows experience. Once installed, a user can literally remake Windows to fit their specific needs. Its capabilities include the ability to alter the Windows GUI, icons, display animated wallpaper, create and use widgets, and much more.
Object Desktop includes:
WindowBlinds is a program for Windows XP or Windows Vista that changes the look and feel of the Windows GUI. It integrates seamlessly into Windows and allows users to alter the appearance of Windows safely -- it doesn't alter any system files (in memory or on disk). A user of WindowBlinds can make Windows look like another operating system or something completely original. WindowBlinds enables users to change the actual Windows graphical user interface to whatever they want. There are literally thousands of different visual styles (skins) to choose from.
IconPackager is the industry standard way of changing all the icons on Windows in a single click. Users choose a set of icons (known as an icon package) and then hit apply and IconPackager will change them all. For users of Windows Vista, IconPackager is the only program that supports live folder icons on Windows Vista and will automatically enhance XP icons to support Windows Vista. IconPackager makes it a snap to apply entirely new sets of icons to Windows XP or Windows Vista.
DesktopX is the grand daddy of desktop enhancement programs. It was the first program on any platform to allow users to create mini-applications on their desktops (commonly called today "widgets" or gadgets"). Long before there was a Mac Dashboard or Konfabulator or Windows Gadgets, there was DesktopX. But DesktopX is so much more than that. It can build entire desktops from scratch. Its integrated editor makes it a snap to share your creations with others users. For Object Desktop, DesktopX gets updated to support Windows Vista more fully. Now, DesktopX creations can be exported and placed on the Windows Sidebar. DesktopX lets users combine their objects together to build entire desktops of their own design.
DeskScapes is an animated wall program for Windows Vista. It takes advantage of the new Windows Vista compositor to do animation without impacting performance. Object Desktop will come with DeskScapes 2.0 which is designed to run on all versions of Windows Vista. While currently only available for Windows Vista users, Stardock is investigating some of the recent video driver advances on Windows XP... DeskScapes runs .DREAM files as animated wallpaper. .DREAM files can contain either video content or dynamic content.
SoundPackager is a pretty straight forward program. It lets users change their Windows sound scheme. What's amazing is that somewhere along the line, Windows quit allowing users to load up distributed sound schemes. You are now expected to set each sound individually (a far cry from the Windows 95 days). SoundPackager, by contrast, makes it a snap to make your own sound schemes and distribute them out. It also comes with some really high quality sound schemes. SoundPackager makes it a snap to create and trade sound schemes. There's already a ton of sound packages available on WinCustomize.com
MyColors combines the 5 preceding elements together into a symphony. A MyColors theme can dramatically alter the look and feel of Windows by changing the Windows GUI, the icons, the background, add widgets, and change the sound scheme. MyColors themes are created exclusively by Stardock to ensure a bullet proof experience. We may open it up to others down the line to create MyColors themes but for now, we want to focus on making sure that the user experience is exquisite. For Object Desktop users, Stardock will be releasing at least 4 MyColors themes per year. The longer one keeps their access to ObjectDesktop.net, the more MyColors themes they'll accumulate.
