I think the customisation functions are superb, but it's just so sluggish. As soon as I put ArtRage on and it took 3 seconds to render a drawn line across the screen I knew I had made a big mistake. I tried other simpler art packages, and they were worse. Gutted. I really wished I hadn't tried it as before I had quite a fast machine. Luckily I backed all my old configurations etc and uninstalled. Blimey it did quite a bit of altering especially to firefox after the uninstall- it was like everything was shouting at me. So I think I'll stick with rocket dock sevendex and the tweaks mentioned on this site. Shame as it looks really good, it's not the fault of the thinix software it's just the inspiron duo isn't powerful enough.
Hello -

Thinix Touch uses less resources when running than the normal Windows shell does, so not sure why you are having issues with speed. My guess is there might have beed an issue with installation. Touch does ask you when you install it if you want it to apply visual customizations, and if you select yet, it makes the bars around Windows bigger. When you uninstall it shoudl reset those to default. If there was an issue there you can reset the sizes manually. The instructions are in the Thinix knowledge base Thinix - Knowledge Base - Industry Leading Touch Screen Solutions for Healthcare, Business, Hospitality and Consumers
