After more than two months of development, I am proud to present Quantria. A very dark...but almost light skin.

Features Include:
4 Substyles (Dark & Light, each with a compact Start Menu).
All original Toolbar Icons and Shell Animations.
Custom UIFiles for the Shellstyles.
All parts of WB are skinned. This includes all the new WB5 features except for per-pixel titlbars, which was completed...but later pulled out because of certain limitations with them. Will try to put them back soon...

This is a very dark skin. You WILL run into problems with certain applications having unreadable text (black text on black background). There is nothing I can do to fix this. So, I made a "Light" substyle that will hopefully get around the majority of these problems, without comprimising the original look of the skin (meaning it's still pretty dark).

Any bugs or questions, you can send an email to

- Fix for close-button not working.

Enjoy! :D

You know... I've been on Objectbar and a Windowblinds skin that both matched each other and in essence, gave me a dark coloured Aqua skin that I REALLY admired and worked for a while on finding and attaining.

The first glance of this tempted me to change. So today, I did. Man.. The thing matches my wallpaper better than anything else. Congratulations. It's perfectly functional (in that there's not that many black text on black background issues) and it's a black beauty at heart. I hope your next work is as good or better than this.
