Let me ask you this guys, What is the security risks of running those modified or enhanced UI skins? Do you think a programmer can put some malicious code to monitor your smartphone?

There is always a possibility that someone somewhere as has added a malicious code to something and it in turn will ruin your computer/device. However, knowing that this is coming from xda, I'd be willing to trust my $500 phone with them. They're nice folks and I haven't seen any reports of anyone saying whatever was on the site has ruined their cell phone or their computer for that matter.

While this is true, I wouldnt recomend some one that doesnt know what they're doing messing wth the operating system too much. "cooked up" OS's can be buggy, with no technical support. Also you might want to check to see if doing so doesnt void the warenty

That is ridiculous, the guys at xda are strictly concerned only for the most advanced mobile capabilities on the planet. To plan and create this stuff takes hours upon hours. And windows mobile is open source. But only for developers. I am member and and amateur creator and I'm affended. The ui's and programs that manufacturers use on windows mobile today all came from us.

Are you "affended" or "offended"? Windows Mobile is not open source. To say they are open source 'but only to developers' is the most retarded thing I have ever heard. Thats like saying "My house is open to anyone, but only my family can come inside. I have an open house."
