Nice skin, only the startbar is a little retro. It doesn't fit with the smoothness of the rest of the skin i think, maybey you can fix that.

The only visual style in the last few weeks that i've found worth downloading. Very nice man, using it now.

Thank god there are still people out there that concentrate on original ideas rather than the latest Windows OS.

I've been rejecting lots of visual styles since I felt the urge to skin my desktop, because I felt they didn't "fit my style". But since I've discovered your themes, "my style" doesn't really matter anymore. Your visual styles look very awesome, they have something particularly special that makes them fit very well in desktop environment. They look slick, don't bother the eye, and so far glitch-free.

Another thing I noticed during the past years is that the visual style can interfere with your mood while sitting at your computer. Yours are both engaging and relaxing.

Good work, I'm looking forward to seeing many more great themes from you :)

(Hmm.. now I notice.. maybe I should be looking for a job in visual styles critique and research :lol: )

Before the update, the expand/collapse sign was a circle with an orange dor inside, after the update it's a square with a cross, is it intended?

:iconkrissirk:
krissirk Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2009
yes,i know :nod: , i changed this from circle to square for match with dark window background.
