Life After Stardock?
Published on February 11, 2012 By skyzyk In Everything Else

I wanted to say thank you for all the new changes in WindowsFx 5 Beta. Everything works just as it should. I have no problems. Intel i7-860, @2.8GHz, AMD 5750.

The "Suck" and "Distort" options on open and close are awesome! Bravo Stardock. You have done it again. You've been telling us about the new Fx for a while and you have lived up to expectations.

I am glad you like it.

I have to say the suck animations are the ones I am using here and a machine without an animating startmenu now feels naked!

The best thing is the animations are scripts so if you don't like something about an animation you can tweak it a bit.  We even updated the script documentation for beta 1.

Absolutely, Neil. This is just great. Thanks so much!

The beta is available to everyone who has a current ObjectDesktop sub, people who purchased WindowFX4 after 9th Sept 2011 and anyone who has purchased the upgrade from WFX4 to WFX5.

It is listed on the store only and will not appear in Impulse at all.
