    "Best launcher so far..."

    November 9, 2011  |  

    Version: Winstep Xtreme 11.6

    Pros

    Can be hidden in the dock position.
    Easy to add items.

    Cons

    Start menu/Taskbar is a bit slow to open and doesn't allow pinning of applications (can be added to the Quickstart menu).

    Coding like Swiss cheese

    A shiny application with not so shiny execution.

    "Lots to play with, yet not a steep learning curve."

    October 1, 2011  |   By withoutascent

    Version: Winstep Xtreme 11.6

    Pros

    Replace over a dozen individual gadgets, docks and enhancement you're probably running now and everything from dock to clock can be themed the same. Very little speed lost even on my ancient XP system!

    Cons

    No real Cons to speak of! No manual available at this time for version 11.6, but they say it's on the way. But the tool tips and Help File are sufficient and the menus are self-explanatory and logical.

    Summary

    This suite of docks, gadgets and desktop enhancements blows away the competition! Any slight drag on your system will only be noticed on older platforms and it will probably be offset by the fact that you'll be uninstalling scads of individual apps and widgets since Xtreme has most anything you'd want.

    "More than does what I need"

    August 22, 2011  |   By Hoods007

    Version: Winstep Xtreme 11.6

    Pros

    Does everything it says smoothly and easily. Fantastic forum support DIRECT from the developer.

    Cons

    None at all.

    Summary

    After trying the various dock programs available I settled on and totally love Winstep - I now have Win7 organised exactly as I want it with lean, orderly, customisable menus etc. instead of Microsoft bloat. Some people get very carried away with their desktop docks and that's great because they can if that's what they want - mine is functional and unobtrusive, and Winstep allows me to make it that way. Best software support I have ever had in 30 years of computing.

    "Simply Mind-blowing"

    August 8, 2011  |   By WizardofWeird

    Version: Winstep Xtreme 11.6

    Pros

    So easy to use and brings Windows into the 22nd century.
    Vastly improves ease of access to programmes
    Stunning themes and interfaces.

    Cons

    None so far...

    Summary

    I can't believe how good this is for the price. The desktop interface puts everything you want at your fingertips, the themes are breathtaking and visually I've seen nothing better. As soon as the installation had finished I clicked THEMES on the new taskbar, selected one and watched as in seconds my laptop was given a make-over beyond belief. Seriously, you have to get this piece of kit if you like your PC to look good and put all your favourite applications only one mouse-click away. This has to be the best bit of system kit I've bought -ever, and hats off to the developer, whoever they are. Now, excuse me while I go play with my new toy...:)

    "No more boring windows stuff."

    July 10, 2011  |   By mixter54

    Version: Winstep Xtreme 11.6

    Pros

    It is like "Transformers"for windows ,and you can change it whenever you want to.You are in charge all of the time.I like the way that it can interact with my desktop backgrounds also.

    Cons

    I'm probably less than an average computer guru and the only problem I have is getting use to its interface and also wish it had more e-mail options like yahoo mail and or others for other users.
