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

@firstfooter: Hey Rick, was on GUIOlympics 2006 and the skin was Acrylic but it's not out there for download thought. I have updated it for Vista and latest WB and I'll up it soon.

safi,

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 :)
