Semi poll: Do you customise ?

Having a look at the recent LQ awards, and in fact, any other discussion about which piece of software is better for a particular purpose, I noticed that some people prefer the one that is "customisable" or "extensible" over the one that isn't. Be it a text editor, a terminal emulator, a shell, or a window manager, just to name a few.

What I want to ask in this semi poll is:

What customisable/extensible software do you use? and how are you extending it to fit your needs?

I am sure we can all benefit from each others experements in this field ( except from mine, as I am not doing any at the moment ).

What software do I run that I cannot customize to my own liking would be a better question for me. Starting with the kernel (I currently use the whole love patchset to get bootsplash and a bunch of other features), through aterm with a bigass .Xdefaults file to go with it, to Firefox with custom userChrome stuff.

This is one of the big points - at least for me - with Linux: You can do pretty much what you want, and however you want to do it as long as you know how to (and if not there is always Google ).
