Everyone wants to have one of those Alienware computers that cost $6,000 but for most of us that is just a fantasy. If you’re going to spend that much why stop there, I was able to configure it up to $10,000+ without even adding any software. Hey, we all need more than 2TB of hard drive space don’t we?
Hmmm, I wouldn’t need that fancy case since it would just get hidden and no one would ever see it. If I was going to pay $10,000 for a computer it would sit on my coffee table in the middle of the living room.
If you don’t want to drop the money for an Alienware PC that doesn’t mean you can’t make your computer look like one. No, you don’t have to be a custom case designer because I am talking about a Windows theme. Alienware actually puts out free software called AlienGUIse and it offers 4 Windows themes that you can choose from. As you can see from my screenshot above it really skins everything!
They are using Stardock, the creator of Object Desktop and WindowBlinds, to provide this theme package to you at no cost. By default it also comes with 5 or 6 other themes that are non-Alienware related. I’m not sure if the theme I’m using, Invader, is one that I will keep but I am sure the Darkstar one would make my blood pressure rise after awhile :) . The ALXMorph theme may actually be a little better for me.
I made sure to try the uninstall so that I could let all of you know how that went (just in case you don’t like the themes). Everything uninstalled perfectly except for the Recycling Bin icon. For some reason that is the only thing that remained the same. I can live with that because that icon is kinda cool.
