For those that I forgot to mention, big big thanks to all of you..

And to my friend (who banned me on his page) that thinking that I was manipulating the download, I'm not angry at you. It's your own opinion and I respect that.. I'm open for reconciliation...

Again, thanks to all who download this theme. This is all for you. Hope you will like the Aero version of this which will be release next week.
