The original VS was done by Vathanx: [link] This is a port for windows 7

PERMISSION: NEXTlevel is skinswingers meaning it can be edited without permission but with credits and submitted under the same license.

Release is still beta, there are quite a few bugs.

BIG thanks to balderoine for the idea and for the awesome preview

Loving this theme, but I generally put my taskbar on the right side of the screen, and the application icons look pretty bad because they overlap the side borders on the taskbar in that position. Is there anything I can do to fix this?

When you mouse over the navbar on the left of an explorer window, the little triangles for expand/collapse appear and look like absolute crap until you mouse over them individually.

Anyone else experiencing these issues? Most glaring issue for me is probably the bottom edge of an aero window always being off color no matter which one I use, at version or not. Unfortunately, there are several other issues (navigation pane, unfocused window's borders not correct etc.) that makes me stay away from using the NEXTLevel port as my main theme despite loving the Vista version.

Solved via PM. "Show shadows under windows" was necessary for it to display properly so thanks fediaFedia!

Great theme.

I copy the NEXTlevel folder and both files to \Resources\Themes, but what is NEXTlevel AT?

And one more question, why is it 2 NEXTlevl in Appearance >>> Installed Themes?
The other one is the real NEXTlevel theme and looks as it shall... and the other one just look strange?

I've been using this theme off and on since you've released it, and it's a good port of NeXTLevel. However, it would be much appreciated if you could fix the remaining bugs, specifically the original taskbar buttons so we can use the non-AT style without clashing.

Thanks Fedia - love lots of your work.
