Feeling kinda nostalgic lately, remembering the good ol' Windows 95-98 days when I got my first PC, and so... my computer journey began.

So I thought "why not mix Simplify 8 and Windows 98 GUI?" And this is my latest creation in progress: Simplify 8 Light Classic!
This is for all you oldies but goldies out there! What do you think? Like it?

If you mean the taskbar icons, you have to replace them manually.
If you mean the icons in explorer, then I'm using the numix ipack.

Wish you could make it completely classic instead, that would be awesome :3

There are already a couple of themes trying to replicate the classic theme, but I don’t want to do that. It's still going to be Simplify but with a sprinkle of classical feeling.

Finally, something that breaks this dull flat fad. Flawless combination :)

Thanks for the feedback. I'm glad someone else like it as well. I've got a few more elements to skin and hopefully I'll release it when I get back home in 12 days.
