Microsoft recently released Windows Phone 7 "Mango" to Manufacturing [link]

Today, I'am going to release a visual style for Windows 7 based on Mango Phone OS.

Codenamed "Mango XB-K", this VS was designed based on Windows Phone 7 Mango and Xbox. A month in the making and took most of my time...

I would like to thank the following for their continuous support and help..

Thanks also to leepat0302 [link] for the start orb bmp [link]

Applications used:

GDI++ [link]
Aero Blur Tweaker [link]

I would like to inform you also that this might be my last metro theme coz' I need to focus on my work now but it not necessarily mean that I will leave Deviantart.. I will still be active here and in Win-8 ..

Happy Theming everyone....

This is quite possibly the best theme available. I've been searching for something easy on the eyes for nighttime use, and I could never find something that did it all correctly.

Thanks.
WOW. I love it..

Nice thanks so this is my new default theme, just getting the left-hand pane of control panel showing as a white background with dark font text (see image URL link below), should that be the case or have I got a previous theme .dll altering your theme?
I seem to have this problem no matter what dark theme I use, does anybody know what image number controls the left-hand pane in Control Panel background colour?

Where are the 64-bit files now? o.0

I CAN apply this style in win 64bit but DON'T try the "System File" as you get the error message & windows doesn't start without a repair or without restoring to an earlier point.
My 64Bit system was previously patched allowing me to apply various VS using "UniversalThemePatcher-x64" so I guess that covered this theme also.
There are other ways to change the system file in 64Bit which have worked previously on themes that don't cover the SystemWOW64 folder files (ExplorerFrame.dll etc) not in this theme like using "Windows 7 Navigation Buttons Customizer" & "Windows 7 Start Button Changer v 2.6" programs in 64Bit OS which I'll try on this theme & report back later.

Doesn't work for me. After applying it cursor gets blinking and only the background shows. Windows then reboots and Aero is shown. A shame, it is a great theme. Thanks and best wishes!

That there are no titles/window names shown seems to be intended, because it's just the font used: "blank" (check W7 customization options to change).

More annoying to me ist that sometimes the letters are distorted, especially the first letter. And that is for all appearances: filenames, titles and even the clock. As it's currently ok, i do not have any screens, but will post 'em, when it happens again.

Though, despite these glitches, the style is really neat and has a good potential to stay with me for a long time. But it needs some fixing.
im with 64 bit windows and can u tell me how to install it?

...yeah, yeah im new to this things >.>
