Yes. And linux can get viruses, it's just that hackers would rather spend their time targeting Windows (which does have more holes) with its greater user base.

I tried Windows blinds once but apparently my "computer guy" said it gave viruses or programs it was affiliated with, Stardock maybe or something. However now, I want a black toolbar and menu etc. skin. Is there a welcoming program I can get one from? not vista...

Huh?.... Stardock is the company that WindowBlinds is from. All you get when you install WindowBlinds is WindowBlinds. Check it out here: http://www.stardock.com/products/windowblinds/ (There's a 30 day free trial.)

Here's my current set-up.

Can I buy it in a store? Or do I have to order it from them?

Well your "computer guy" is wrong. WindowBlind in itself doesn't have any viruses. I have used it several times with very different virus programs installed (AVG, Norton, McAfee, Panda, F-Secure) and never encountered a virus warning on it.

However there are the custom skins that you download to use with WindowBlinds that can sometimes contain harmful material, and also WindowBlinds tend to use a bit of resources so its not recommended if you are using high end software or games (wow, photoshop etc) as it slows them down a bit.

If you still want to use it, i recommend browsing for sites that seem a bit more decent. These sites usually have a higher safety and check for viruses regularely

Yes I was corrected earlier by seerah, Thankyou Malcite
"Affiliated" with Windows blinds, It could well of been a skin file.
I'm trying to get the package thingy Rob posted above, but the files are downloading at 5kbps and disconnecting me from the servers moments through the d/l.

EDIT: well i'm up to the stage where i need Uxtheme Multi-patcher 5.5 In order to run the Skin package Robthedude posted. I searhed it first for some info on it before i DL and came to a standstill when i read this comment

"terrible"

changes windows system files and makes them inreadable so windows becomes unstable.
Do not download trust me.

- dinggggggggggggggggg

ehhh, to the computer file guru's, shall i Download ?

I personally didnt like windowblinds when i tired it a while back. On suggestion from several friends i gave the less robust stylexp a go. So far im very happy. Doesnt have some of the flexibility i recall from windowblinds, but i find it easier to use so it suits my needs.

I actually just paid for WindowBlinds the other day. I used it all through its trial, then tried LiteStep, Aston, and perhaps one other, and tried living with the default look of XP again. I hate the Win2000 look, so changing colors, etc, myself was out of the question, and I only really like the silver xp theme of those three. So, back to WindowBlinds I went, and I paid the $20 as an early birthday present to myself.

Actually It would be near impossible for a linux user to get a virus. Things aren't automatically installed as a background process as in windows. You have to input a secure password when ever installing anything...

you can get it from www.ubuntu.com the cube is a program called Beryl @ www.beryl-project.org. There are some really cool youtube videos of it.

That is quite an optimistic point of view you have
Probably the most dangerous flaw to any OS, the user absolute trust into the system security

It's not impossible, but it is virtually improvable. Linux was built with security in mind. Something that was an afterthought for Windows. Even IF a virus got onto your system, you'll be running at a normal user so you'll be unable to do any major damage.

In Linux, you have to rely on an application exploit to even try to do any dmg. Given the speed of patches (1-2 day turnarounds) it's improvable Linux would be hacked.

My current desktop:


By xinhkero

OS: Windows XP Home SP2
Theme: Ubuntu Human Theme (Blue), imported into Windowblinds
Icons: NuoveXT-KDE (RocketDock and the lone folder) from KDE_Look.org & Equal (the drive icons) Author: Maidanov

Likely my last major UI overhaul until I replace Windows with Ubuntu (provided Poste Italia does not lose the CD).

Windose with an Unbuntu Look, I like it. I was an avid user of Windows blinds before I left windows. Well, I still dual boot XP for certain games that aren't supported in wine. Like Warcraft 1/2, I tried them in dosbox, that was just too much hassle for me. Or too repetitive rather.

Nice Desktop.
