Just dropped by to say that I'd been using this theme for about 7 years now and it's the best XP visual style EVER. You should get a medal for this.

Thank you!

P.S. Too bad this can't be applied to Win7 and Win8... Such a loss.

I love this skin. Fell in love the moment I saw it. However, I discovered a small glitch - it appears on the 'small buttons.' For example, when using Photoshop, the minimize button on the 'small window' is too big (the cross button is ok). But other than that, I love it (ok.. maybe except for the text being in the middle, but that's personal preference). :D

Can you post a screenshot. All the buttons and everything in photoshop is fine here.

Here it is:

aahhh ok I thought you were writing in another theme, didnt read that it was this one.
When I created that visual style I didnt know how to fix that. I'll try to work on that but right now I cant.

Haha.. I see. Sure. :)

wow would love a windws blinds version of this.

Awesome skin. I'm currently using it right now. ^_^
The only thing that bugs me is it doesn't look like your screen cap up there. How do I get the fun Mac taskbar on the bottom and the normal taskbar on the top?
limpsharp Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2005
that floaty bar is a dock. you can get objectdock for free, or try and find a copy of YZDock. YZDock is smaller and lighter and does what you need, but is discontinued and difficult to find. objectdock is getting quite bloated but is quite powerful.
dsudorion Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2004
it would be really nice if you add a 1pixel border vs. that reallly makes a diffrence in the OS look.
i really like this one

Any way to make the buttons of minimised windows light up a bit when you hover over them?
FrankEBailey Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2004
With this VS, all my text in Opera 7.23 becomes Courier New - my window titles, menus, everything. Can you maybe give me some way I can stop this from happening? I *love* your Visual Style, I just find it odd that Opera behaves weirdly when it's enabled.

woop Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2004
Comparing to Tiger your latest, I would say that Brushed Panther is kind of just right (rather than too Windowish...). Are you still working on this one such as to provide a compact version and user_name on the start_menu etc.? Oops, too greedy perhaps....

Really nice work and cheers!
zygrael Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2004

great style!
jadugarr Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2003
Very nice skin. If I see more stuff like this I may switch to Visual Styles instead of WindowBlinds 4.
a-t-o-m-i-c Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2003
Awesome work here, I find the metal very well tiled, it gives a really good sense of diversity in the panels of the skin. In other words, great job!
mikeakabatman Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2003
i enjoy it, it's very pretty, i think i'll add this to my favorites list.

Great stuff! Now if only someone in apple would write a Safari port for Windows ;)
darkmana Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2004
Apple doesnt need to write a port... it's called Mozilla and is available for virtually every operating system on the planet. [link]. It's good stuff! =D

And you are STILL my hero. This is lovely. And I love those icons, too.
Jeehemdee Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2003
Outstanding !!!
Now, excuse my ignorance but:
1) Where can you get those icons ?
2) What's the name of the "top bar" utility?
3) What's the name of the "bottom bar/dock" utility?

j3t Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2003
icons, i'm not too sure but they look like gant, you can do a search for them here on devart.
top bar is just standard task bar, placed at top of screen.
bottom dock could be... yz dock, mobydock, object dock or afew others.

great theme man, i like it.
