Wallpapers (Giants Collide by OpusWorks
other set by bangbang023)

Testers: djlethal01, Hidea, Marduk, TwiztedCam, vip.

Thanks to all mentioned above!

Updates since 1.0
- New colour : Deep
- Added : Undock image
- Tweaked : System colours
- Fixed : IE Progress bar (thanks ThemeNorth)
- Fixed : Centered Help caption button
- Many small GUI optimisations

Dear b0se, what about licensing? I personally consider this theme a masterpiece, and would like to port it to some linux desktop environments (particularly icewm). Would you allow me to do this? If yes, would you also bother to provide us with the sources (i.e. images and whatever was put into msstyles and dlls)?
Dear b0se, please, port it to Windows 7!

Heck, thanks for the feedback! Great to see it being used 7 years since it was created!
I've had it on my XP for 5 or 6 years now. Wish it will be ported to Windows 7 for my laptop.
