I've been waiting for something to replace my current windows theme for quite some time. aerial by ~danillooc did just that. This is by far the coolest theme I have seen in a long, long while. And while you're at it, don't forget to grab aerial Player 1.0, a matching media player skin and aerial RL, a matching Rainlendar skin.

Woah this is really nice! Wish it was for win7. Needs to be shinier though :P Sorry for the tendency toward mainstream ideals :doh:

I really like everything about this skin. Beautiful scrollbars :D

Your WB skins are the best, elegant, thorough, complete, and beautiful. When is your next one coming out?

some body lease port it to windows shell style theme windows blind dispite being shiny cute and good looking , takes too much resources and eats up lots of pc memory
max-n0d3's avatar
teh hell? WB doesnt even show up in system resources?
danioc's avatar

You're totally wrong about WindowBlinds take resources, depending of the skin you use, it's will take less resources than the default Windows UI, you can open your "Task Manager" and will see there's no WindowBlinds process running at all.

About port the skin, I'm sorry but I'm against the use of hacked DLL's used to apply VStyles. I hope you understand and want to thank you for comment the skin :)
