    Object dock subscription worth it?


    I'm looking to modify my experience with 8.1 and getting used to rain meter + rocket dock. I'm getting tempted into the sub from Stardock with everything attached with window blinds but i'm hesitant bc it seems like its nowhere near the customization as rain meter? am i wrong?

    is it worth the 50 bucks?

    I tried it - but prefer Rainmeter. Just my personal preference. A little easier to configure than Rainmeter, but you are correct about nowhere near the customization of Rainmeter. My attitude is why pay for something when you can accomplish what you like with something free?

    (Cheapskate, but happy)
