I've never heard of StarDock either; a quick Google turns up a vendor
selling "skins" (interface mods) for Windows. Can't imagine how that
would be useful for anything in IT; wouldn't you want to use a
standard interface for your screenshots?

As for SnagIt, it's a great, inexpensive purpose-built tool for taking
screen captures, editing and annotating them; I consider it part of my
core toolset.

You can take screen captures with a variety of tools, including the
(completely free) PrtSc-and-paste-into-Windows-Paint method, but
SnagIt makes everything quicker and easier, in my opinion.

Your mileage may vary; as long as you've got something that gets the
job done and makes you happy, why switch?
