A professional theme made for developers and XP users who are at their PC for long periods.

Added a totally new sub-style:

XPMC Induztry.

A dark theme with black widgets, but not too dark. Most dark themes before too much over time; XPMC Induztry has purposely been left with light elements (such as the main window and all 3D area's). A perfect mix!

- Normal and compact versions.
- Matching wallpaper for each.
- Simple and elegant shellstyles.

See the readme for more info.

And more importantly: I hope you enjoy using this theme! :)

(Note: XPMC final will be released within the next month. It will have colour variations of both XPMC and XPMC Industry, along with matching Winamp and Trillian skins).

* I highly recommend using ClearType.

Beautifully elegant theme. So nice and usable. The only thing I would improve is the scrollbar, which is hard to identify. Also, please make more colour modifications.

Love the theme. I have one point to bring up though.

It seems that there is some kind of memory leak caused by using this theme on my installation. The explorer.exe process slowly consumes more and more memory and over the course of 24 hours I start to see "out of memory" errors. It can eat up more than 1 GB of memory in this time period. Using another Windows XP theme seems to have fixed the issue.

Still, I really like the unique feel of your theme, so if the memory issue went away I would probably use it again.

I tend to get bored with the same stuff on my PC's screen. With this theme, I just keep coming back, again and again. Not only is it an eye-pleasing theme, it is also super-ergonomic and well thought-out.
b0se, you are a true master of visual styling!
