Since a few people asked, I’d like to clarify the current situation about customization projects. With declining trends of OS customization, we have less talented artists in community. Windows and macOS has less news and UI enhancements to update. That’s why there isn’t much of UI changes in recent updates.
Also, web ad is dying out and adblock even made things worse. Lee gave another chance trying to build ViFind with me for macOS customization but he later gave up because he had to put his time on things that he can earn revenue to pay the bill. I, too have put more time on real-life stuff that makes living since Windows X’s Live doesn’t make enough to pay for the bill anymore.
ViFind has high potentials so it really saddens me to see no updates. I’m still checking out news about Windows 10 and macOS. If there’s major upgrade that is worth applying to customization packs, I’ll put some spare time to do it but I’m quite busy nowadays with real life works.
We still think of plans to do ahead about OS customization. It’s sad to see this thing dying out and put the world’s most reliable transformation packs off stage. I’ve been developing this platform for over 10 years and it’s the only single software that supports from Windows XP to Windows 10.
If there’s somehow a method to fund us revenue enough to dedicated our time too, we can spend more time building better stuff for you guys. Right now we’re checking out Patreon which seems to be the most viable solution right now. I’m also open for other ideas so feel free to drop by.
If you can become our patron, please share this post and comment below so we can see the possibility of making a future to OS customization. I can think of a few rewards for our patron like monthly poll voting, application skinning request, new customization request, and so on. Let’s save OS customization community together!
