Ok this is not a new visual style; this is simply a mod of Nion Redux to include a compact start menu.
Lassekongon 83 and Sakurakira designed Nion and Nion Redux respectively and all I have done is take a very nice minimal style and add a compact start menu.
Tahoma, Calibri and Segoe UI and as seen in the preview graphite and black are the only colour options. I have tried to eliminate all bugs so hopefully none should be present if anyone finds any let me know and Ill try and fix them
This is a mod of the wonderful Nion theme, by =lassekongo83. He makes nice minimal Visual Styles, but I always end up modding them in some way. When he released this and I ended up modding it, I knew that people would be asking for me to share it if I posted a screenshot of my desktop.
Please keep in mind that I originally modded this to suit my own needs. Once I realized that I would probably end up releasing it, I tried my best to make all of the mods consistent throughout. It took me a few hours to do all of these changes, and the program I used can be found here: [link] .
Let me know if there are any bugs, and I will try my best to fix them.
Update [Feb 21, 08]: * Changed inactive captions to match to frame * Changed taskbar buttons to look decent with multi-line taskbar * Changed theme name (on request) to differentiate from the original * Changed graphite highlight color to graphite, from teal * Updated the vertical taskbar graphics * Minor additional bug fixes
List of modifications [Nov 27, 07]: * Additional dark grey color scheme * Three fonts: Calibri, Tahoma, and Segoe UI * Smooth borders and taskbar, insted of plastic * Altered the taskband buttons to match * Changed the captions buttons * Fixed the "smallclose" caption button * Made the scrollbar a bit easier to see * Changes the start button (keeps with the author's preference, but matches the theme and remains minimal)
I have NO plans to add a compact start menu, DO NOT ASK!
