UXtheme will be better than windowsblinds. UXtheme patches windowsxp so it can run custom theme but windowsblind has to run in background.

Well it doesnt anymore, they just updated windowsblinds to 5.0 and they made it patch windows just like UXtheme.

Windowsblinds has WAY more features and is generally easier to use (imo)

I use style xp, it works with windows to give you styles. it doesn't run in the background and it looks good. I like to keep my desktop very clean and neat. No stupid useless gadgets all over the place and dumb busy backgrounds.
