Stardock Delivers Object Desktop 2007
Stardock on Tuesday released the 2007 version of its popular Object Desktop suite of Windows customization utilities. The package of tools enables customers to completely change the way Windows looks and functions to suit their personal tastes.
Included in Object Desktop 2007 are the latest iterations of WindowBlinds, IconPackager, DesktopX, WindowFX, RightClick, Keyboard LaunchPad and more. Enhanced File Dialog is a newcomer to the suite, providing a much more expansive Open and Save dialog window than that offered in Windows.
Stardock has posted a video highlighting the functionality in Object Desktop 2007.
Although Object Desktop has been primarily designed for the tech savvy computer user, Stardock is targeting the new release for everyone. The company has designed a simple Object Desktop Launchpad that provides a central location to configure and run the included utilities.
In addition, Stardock has updated the Object Desktop applications to more seamlessly work together. "Object Desktop has always been popular with power users and leading edge computer makers and companies," said company CEO Brad Wardell. "With Object Desktop 2007, our goal is to bring in a wider base of users who are interested in customizing Windows but aren't 'techies'."
With Windows Vista on the horizon, Stardock is offering Object Desktop 2007 customers a free year of complimentary upgrades to the product, which works on a subscription basis. The company is promising a number of updates that will take advantage of new capabilities coming in Windows Vista.
"While we can't talk about our specific plans for Vista, know that there is some pretty cool stuff coming down the pipeline," said Wardell.
Object Desktop 2007 is priced at $49.99 USD, and is available for purchase immediately from Stardock's Web site. Customers who purchased Object Desktop in the past can renew their subscription for $34.95 USD.
