EX2008 Visual Style
WinXP Visual Style Pack

Dark slim-3D style with usability and performance

An original dark visual theme designed for artists and designers with Pro standard

- Works best with high-resolution display (1650x1050 etc)
- Set fonts size to large and icon size to 72px or above)

It has test through with most of software, yet bug reports are welcome

3 font choices (normal= Tahoma 8, large= AquaBase 10, Extra Large= Luxi 10)
Top shell style
- Modified 'msgina.dll' (Turnoff)
- 2 type of Styler’s toolbar
- 2 type of wallpapers
- 8 Icons for HD, folder and CD (I cannot find any more time in this year)
- Icons with size 54px for Start Panel (replacement for any icon pack of IconTweaker)
- Alternative images for Logon (shell32.dll)

Enjoy and happy 2008!

This, plus FT Deepddark for firefox/VLC and some dank wallpaper = the perfect desktop.

Thanks again for creating this!

Hi I just wanted to check with you, currently because Windows 7 is out this theme is basically useless to me. However I have found it is great for use in Ubuntu with WINE for theming it. Will you ever plan to update this for Windows 7?

Dear ~SamDeRe81, long time no see and thanks for your comment....

I was not lazy at all! ...well...
1. my 2 years (2008--2010) working HD breakdown, which is no way recovered in local; not before i return to Amsterdam, though i had some backups but not the new UI for Opera/Firefox that has been down.

2. to be live/working in Shanghai isn't that easy at all....

Right ow I'd like to show you my new UI work for my life in Shanghai : [link]

hope you get what i try to show you,

PS Green Chinese food (bread that with Shanghai green fungus) over map of Shanghai.
