I wish we could have a demo version for, say, one week to try it out. It could then become unavailable but would let us make sure that it works properly with our Windows builds. I have downloaded many themes but most of them didn't work properly. Eventually I landed on Matte style which I could download for free and now I'm going to donate to the developer. This is the best way, IMHO but please consider making at least a time-limited demo. Your style looks very cool!
