Vista Visual Styles and Themes

Sun Feb 3, 2008, 10:52 AM
I swear.. if I see one more Windows Vista visual style or shell theme, I will puke. :puke:  This includes Longhorn and Inspirat themes.  

What happened to creativity?  It seems that all anyone wants to do now is port other people's themes, with slight modifications, and call it their own.  Just because your vista start button glows red instead of blue, doesn't mean it's yours.

If I wanted my operating system to look like Windows Vista (which god only knows why anyone would want such an atrocious looking theme), then I'd run Windows Vista.

It is ok to be inspired by something, but come on... this isn't inspiration, it's borderline plagiarism in my opinion.

I really miss the old days when skinners were really innovative with their designs.  I'm not saying they are all gone, but, the fact of the matter is... too rarely do I see a nice shell theme for windows that isn't HEAVILY influenced by someone else's work.

Prove me wrong, send me links to some really nice original themes.

Napalm Riot!
