I was looking out for Instant Messenger application that allows me to connect to multiple chat services at the same time so that I don't have to run too many messengers at a same time. Yes previously I knew about some open source multi protocol messengers but somehow the interface didn't satisfy me much. Now I've checked Pidgin and Miranda and both of them looks just fine. Pidgin has a kind of Web 2.0 look, smooth and simple interface. Lets take a moment to review these 2 clients.
Vista Transformation Pack – Bring to your desktop the look of Microsoft’s future operating system, Windows Vista
I’m pretty sure you must know and have seen Windows Vista before. It looks really nice for major GUI updates. Many people who have seen it wish to get Vista-style looks for their operating system.

I didn’t try PowerISO or UltraISO yet.
