I've been watching the different Microsoft Plus! videos on the MichaelMJD youtube channel then we had a the recent question here about changing the background and it made me wonder how many people bother with Plus these days or use anything but the default theme?
For myself, I was always interested in Plus! but really it got less and less relevant.
I did and still use Plus! 95. Back in the day for Drivespace 3 and theme support. These days it's just for GUI enhancements and nostalgia for the splash screen.
I tired Plus! 98 back when it was my currant OS but it didn't really offer anything useful so didn't last long and don't think I ever even installed XP's as the additions didn't interest me.
As for Themes I had the GDI Command and Conquer theme that came with the C&C for windows for a while, but really I always preferred the simple default theme.
Windows XP I'd always switch to Windows Classic so it looked like Windows 2000. It was only when I stopped using it daily did I keep the Bliss theme, I guess to emulate the majority of XP PC's I'd used over the years.
Mostly I find the icons, sounds and cursors annoying.
