:bulletblue: Window Frames (Basic, Animating, Aero Tool, Basic Tool, Aero Peek)

:bulletblue: Changed Check Box to match the color scheme.
:bulletyellow: Ported SysMetrics and Global Color scheme.

I'm not done for the day, this is just a checkpoint.

Special Thanks to: AngelWZR.

Note: (I'm still not happy about the Radio and Checkbox's default states. They'll be revised again in a later update when I find a consistent and proper look)


So this is a quick unfinished version of Aero Lite's recreation for 7.

Here's what's done:

Window Frame (Aero)
Window Caption Buttons (Aero)
Push Buttons
Combo Box
Radio Box
Check Box
Start Menu (Aero)
Jump Lists

I will continue editing this until I replace at least 90% of all imagery in the msstyles. Enjoy.

Since other people have created better alternatives, I no longer update this theme.

Hey dude your VS is every pixel perfect rather than bunch of those floating on dA.So we request you to make further improvements in it.I'm myself using the same theme from last 3 weeks and i'm loving the simplicity..:)

Not sure why you say 'better' alternatives... yours is the best of the bunch. Nothing is out of place, every pixel feels like it belongs there. These others really do suck... I don't mind you stopping, at least your better copy is still available!

I tried your theme, but for me it lacked the flatness that I like, and had some issues with hovering on taskbar previews, toolbox forms, and where the side of a window meets the title bar. I uploaded the pictures for you to view.
