Christmas Garland Lights 1.0
Add a string of Christmas lights to your desktop

Christmas Garland Lights is a festive desktop gadget which does exactly what its name suggests, adding a string of Christmas tree lights to the top of your desktop.

The initial effect isn't exactly subtle, as the lights flash on and off in sequence. We could just about manage to work while it was running, but if it's too much for you then the lights can be tweaked in many ways (size, speed of animation, transparency, "always on top", and more).

If you're feeling particularly Scrooge-like then you might wonder whether Christmas Garland Lights has any practical benefit at all. And we would have to admit that we can't think of a single one.

Still, it's fun, festive, and nicely implemented. The core process took a mere 2.8MB on our test PC, and no measurable CPU time at all. And unusually for this type of app, there's no bundled adware and no installation required, so you can run it for a few minutes without worrying about the consequences.

Verdict:

It's totally pointless. A dumb idea. But Christmas Garland Lights also looks good, is lightweight, configurable, and a great way to dress your desktop for the holidays.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
