Are you bored to death with the Windows Vista logon screen? C'mon, just admit it! You are dying for a little customization! And while Windows Vista does in fact permit the end users to extensively personalize their copy of the latest Windows client,
tweaking the logon screen is not as a streamlined an action as it might seem. And just think about it! The screen welcomes you to your copy of Vista on every boot. Every time you press down Ctrl + Alt + Del in order to lock your machine, switch the user or log off or in.
Now, the default Vista logon screen features a background that is consistent with the overall Aero theme of the operating system. This is by no means a bad thing, but if you are one of those users who pay extreme attention even to the most anodyne details, then the Aero themed Vista logon screen will get really old, really fast. But you don't really have to put up with it. The fact of the matter is that Stardock is offering an application dubbed LogonStudio for Vista 1.0.0 that will permit you to tweak the platform's logon screen to something more to your liking.
You might have heard of Stardock. A similar offer is available for the logon screen in Windows XP. In addition, Stardock is now working on making DreamScene available to Windows Vista Home Premium and Business editions
, liberalizing the technology from the exclusivity Microsoft has given it by restricting it to just the Ultimate SKU. Stardock has in fact developed the original DreamScene, offered by Microsoft, as an Ultimate Extra complement to its high end edition of Vista.
LogonStudio for Vista 1.0.0 is available as a free download via this link right here
on Softpedia. Vista users will be able to manage their own personalized logon screens by tapping the application's editing features. At the same time, if an inspiration crisis hits you can always tap Stardock's WinCustomize Gallery
for some nice eye candy. LogonStudio for XP can be grabbed here
