Here we go again. Opus OS by ~b0se is another stunning example of the beauty of simplicity. You will never need another visual style after using this! ( Featured by jark )

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)?

I guess I'm pretty late to say this but this VS is by far & away the best one out there, imo. I've of course tried loads of them but this one stands haed & shoulders above the others. It's a shame you're not skinning any more as I'm sure your skills have only improved. Thanks for the effort mate, appreciated.

Go here:[link] and read the instructions and download the file. This will enable you to use windows visual style files. Once you do that, download the zip file for this theme and double click the windows visual style file and everything should run smooth from there. :)
