And for a start, Martha Stewart has NOT joined ECN!. [Linked Image]
Just wondering, what is your favourite Windows colouring?.
I'm not sure if Windows 95 and 98 allow you to change the colour of the window borders.
But, I must say I really hate the Blue borders and prefer to use the Silver ones.
Your Opinions welcome.........

Yes, 95 and 98 let you customize just about all the colors individually, as well as providing the range of supplied color schemes (Windows default, Rainy Day, Desert, Maple, etc.).

You mean to tell me there is some place this vile women, devil incarnate, has not affected?

Consider yourself lucky.

Along with being snooty, she is being investigated for insider trading.

Go here to see her, but many annoying pop ups.

All my machines (Win 95 OSR 2.5xxx and Win 98 SER 2.xxx) have the most bland settings for everything!

Desktop is just basic Blue/Green - without any wallpaper.

Windows (Dialog Boxes) are the default color schemes (Blue = active, Gray = non active) and use the default Sans Serif MS Font.

Even if I had 100 Gazillion Bytes of DRAM, 800 GHZ CPU, 400 GHZ bus speed, 100 MBytes of L2 Cache; and the fastest, lowest resource taxing video adapter known to man kind,
I would still (by "default" [Linked Image]...) set everything this way!

Have to leave as many free resources to "crucial apps" as possible!!!

Well, I do have a picture as wallpaper and a fancy screen saver but I really do hate those fancy cursor options. Blue and grey colors work fine for me. I perodically comb through the start menu and some of the registry to make sure things haven't crept in that I didn't specificly put there. The web underhandly throws stuff at you all the time.

I've been having a little play around with the Border colours and so forth and I've come up with a cool shade of green.
Also I prefer the Windas Classic style as opposed to the XP style.
For those that have XP, you can go into Control Panel > Display > Appearance.
From there, you can choose a whole heap of colour schemes, some of the High Contrast schemes are cool. [Linked Image]

I use Seti at Home as screensaver, that helps us protect our Earth of asteroids and mini planets.
http://setiathome.ssl.berkeley.edu/download.html

You can download and watch how it analyzes the data. Very exciting.

You can even find an asteroid and give name to it! [Linked Image]

The sw does no harm on the pc, runs when screensaver is active only.

You may setup the connection, for you can choose to be alerted when the sw needs to contact and send info, or it can do it automaticaly.
