Stardock: A Must for the Colorblind

I'm partially colorblind, and a few months ago, I became really sick of the standard Windows XP themes, that all are either really annoying, or use colors that I have trouble seeing.

About 6 months ago, I decided to look for a solution. I started with the standard windows XP theme sites. During the search, I managed to trip across: Stardock ... It took a while sorting through the hundreds of available themes, but finally I found Cha-Ninja. It works great for my particular version of color blind (I can't distinguish between blues and purples or between greens and browns) and I happen to like the aesthetics as well.

So, all of you who happen to be colorblind, or partially colorblind. Take a look at Stardock. Even their free packages can make windows a much friendlier place for the color challenged. I've purchased their full suite and have no intention of ever giving it up.

I'll second that Stardock and its assorted add ons are great. I'm not color blind and use a different theme. My biggest complaint with any display deals with DPI issues, but I haven't taken the time to see how much of that I can attack with skinning software such as Stardock. Font sizes seem only to adjust window title fonts and menus.
