Using Wave by =seahorsepip makes your Windows 7 feel all lightweight and "fluffy".

One suggester said: "This is one of the best combinations of Mac and Linux elements resulting into a great looking VS. Clean and original details with a wallpaper, which was also made by the author to compliment the style, will definitely refresh your desktop!"

And yet another suggester said: "Wave is a simple and elegant Windows 7 visual style that skins literally every part of your system, including visual style, logon screen, icons, cursor etc... The easy install and theme consistency make this theme a must-have for Windows 7 users."

This is my first critique ever so don't judge me.


First thing you gonna notice is that the amount of time the artists has put on this, even the smallest things are so perfect as they can ever be, taskbar should've differently colored because it's very hard to find suitable icons to put in it, I would have prefered a transparent taskbar instead of white one. And I wished a version which has no searbox in startmenu, and a version without Address bar would've been great too.


There's no many theme's which has all the things inside by default, and everything is explained perfectly so you're not gonna mess up your computer while installing this masterpiece. Nice choice to colors and icons, even wallpaper in very unique, and top of the iceberg is those awesome cursors and very cool login screen background.


Refresh button in Address bar looks unfocused and blurry, it's not that sharp as it should be, "All Programs" text is lower than "Shutdown" text is startmenu buttons which gives unfinished impact (This might be Windows's fault not this theme), and I'm not the biggest fan of the font which artist used in this theme.


No matter how old computer you have, this masterpiece gives a feeling as if you have a new computer, it even feels that it makes your computer much faster too, you not gonna regret if you install this masterpiece to your computer.
