Well, I appreciate your consideration, for sure.
I will get off this soapbox with one last possibility... could you just upgrade the pictures that show the older blinds to the current resolutions? That shouldn't take somebody more than a couple of days. It looks to me like we need more users WAY more than we need more skinners and maybe this little tweak would help.
I think we are seeing yet another revolution in user demand for a WOW experience. Neil and the crew are now competing with VR/Hi Def/Real Time/Surround Everything.....you get the idea.
I think the fact is, that the UI market moved to touchscreen Boxland because that was what was being offered by the Biggies. I think that market is now moving back to more highly rendered sub-environments because the horsepower for such graphical embellishments is now getting cheaper and smaller.
If you guys can keep a customer base interested in SOME kind of graphical sparkle that changes easily there may still be hope that a swing in the User Interface Canvas will regenerate a growing market for a Windowblinds/Start approach.
Boy, would that be nice!
