Too much white!!!
Icons kinda not good and not colorful just white and grey!!!
Start menu is very nice!!! But does not have the new Windows icon!!!
Use the REAL , NO EDIT Windows icon!!!
Try replacing the white color with the soft crystal color in the start menu!!!
Replace the icons with better ones!!! I know it's almost imposssible to get great icons , cuz that's what happened to me!!! But , if possible , get better icons!!!
I also liked some rainmeter skin called "Elementary" so use it
and change it's color to crystal black ((Ask permission from it's creator))!!!

First impression: "Oh, cool it's not a bubbly theme, it's not an adobe knock off, and it's not a win shine knock off"

First impression after installing: "The only thing that has obviously changed (I usually use win 7 shine by zain adeel) is the window border"

Other comments:

I'm happy to see more work from one of my favorite UI designers!
This one has a good feel to it that I haven't seen before. It has a lot of white, and, while I'm not a big fan of white, it does fit with itself. It also has more opaque than I prefer. However, the slight transparency in the window bars look very nice.

One issue I have is that the scroll bars are barely visible. Here is a comparison of the Default Google Drive Scroll bar with the Lucido Scroll bar [link] Notice that the color of Lucido scroll bar makes it barely visible, even when zoomed in. (I included the google drive scroll bar both as a comparison and as an example of a color that would be easier to see against a white background)

An aesthetic (as opposed to utility) problem I found is that the taskbar, tasktips, and start menu don't seem to match the window borders. They do look nice (I'm a big fan of the transparency on them), but it could be improved by including something like the alpha gradient present in the top window borders.

As for the skins, I have not tried them (I'm not a user of rainmeter), but they look very well done from the screenshot provided.

TL;DR:

Usability 6/10 - scroll bars are invisible in some situations, and that causes problems

Creativity 8/10 - I haven't seen this kind of effect in a window border before

Aesthetics 5/10 - Brighter than I prefer but still looks good, also could use a rework of the taskbar, task tips, and the start menu to include the themes in the window borders

Overall 7/10 - well done, better than a lot of the crap I've seen. Not sure I'll use it longer than a little bit because I like mostly transparent themes. (I enjoy when the colors of my background set the feel for the theme)

i have a problem for installing your themes. i'm running win 7 64bit. it can't be installed manually so i applied it using theme manager. it worked once but one day i log on to see the theme changed into 'windows classic'. even though i re-applied it, it's still the same, for all of the themes. i already installed all of the requirements, but the theme seems to be not applied  completely, what should i do ;w;

Hey really digging the theme. However there's one little bug. On my desktop there's this thin white bar on the right that won't go away unless i completely minimize everything to desktop. Any ideas? Thanks

Nice win7 VS's. But yeah, adfly link for explorerframe.dll?

You just lost all respect in my book... your a talented graphic artist, go get a career in the field instead of nickel and dime'ng the deviants to death... besides, isn't respect worth more than the $4 a month you get from adfly? Id think so...
