I love the theme and also seahorsepip's Support is AWESOME!
The theme is simple but nice <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=";)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="387" title=";) (Wink)"/>. One thing I have to say is that there is no windows 7 version included and the icons are also not implented. The taskbar was updated a time ago so the picture is also old. But i got the old taskbar back by asking him in skype of an modded theme file. His Skype name is linked on his website btw.

Paid $ 5 really worth very much!
and to seahorsepip: Please update the theme more often! <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="391" title=":) (Smile)"/>
Nice look my friend!!
