Another one of my favorite skins that needs to be updated is my Gatekeeper theme for Desktopx. I ported this with permission from a skin for the Explorer replacement called Talisman. It has areas that are animated, and is just a pretty darn cool skin. That’s one of the reasons I ported it for use. It’s also my second most highly downloaded skin.
All of the little knobs and doodads in the lower left are switches that open little windows just to the right with menus inside. That’s the start menu replacement. There are some other animated areas as well.
I did this one in September of 2000, so it is in desperate need of an update.
