nothing to sorry about , you all totally right :icon_cool:

i know , actually it was named WinSkin but i found out that another program has the same name

http://winskin.com/ so the logo was "Ws" not "Bs" , i was going to change it in 0.2 but since i will change the name also , i decided to delay it to 0.3

btw , nice suggestion

Exclusion List upgraded in 0.3, you can now exclude programs by process name

and class name, and specify a skin for a certain window

screenshots :

Example : AeroBlue is Applied only on Explorer http://img132.imageshack.us/img132/6075/exclutionwindow.png

Aero Explorer : AeroExplorer is Applied only on Explorer http://img505.imageshack.us/img505/150/aeroexplorer.png

Edit : i just took the permission from fediaFedia to use his skin Windows Aero Beta for WB by fediaFedia

Here's a New Screen Shot

hi all

Developing is now active again (i finally took my vacation yesterday, working on it from since)

okay folks , i need your help

since i am going to change the name of the program I have been thinking about some names

but i can't get some thing catchy , current my option is WindowSkin (i wish that i could use WinSkin

instead but there's winskin.com) ,ExplorerSkin is suggested before but it is taken

SO PLEASE ANYONE THAT HAVE ANY NAME PLEASE POST IT :) BECAUSE I AM REALLY OUT OF IDEAS :crying_anim02:

------------

Since i don't want to spend a week trying to find a name for the application rather than release it, here's what has been suggested :

Metallica Skin (MS) , Fraero (free aero) , Quiro (quick aero) , Aevo , GlassXP , Metallica Skin (MS) , Glass XP

Aero XP , XP-skin , Apptastic , PeanutSkin , TPWD (The Perfect Window Manger) , TUWD (The Ultimate Window Manger) , Diamond-XP , Glowy , GLOW (Glass Light On Windows) , WinBlur , WinDecorations , WinDecor , WinDecorSkin , SkinDecorations , SkinDecor , SkinFrame , WindowSkin , WinGBK (Windows Glass Blur) , WinBlurSkin , BlurSkin , WinBlurXP , BlurXP , Kskinner(Komalo skinner) , SkinWinnerK (komalo winner skin)

i came up with WinComposite and WinCrystal

And to tell you the truth, i am a little on "WinCrystal" side , so i am thinking about it as the name, if any one saw one of the other names will be more suitable

please suggest it now
