    Thanks, but the direct link should be this.
    On second check, it seems to be the same page, although different link.
    I can't find how to delete my post. Sorry for that.

    do these themes include icons or just pictures and screen color?

    I guess it depends.
    Simply download what looks interesting and open the file with a archive software (7zip, PeaZip, WinRAR, etc...) and check the what it contains. It can also contain WAV files.

    Always thought about this, if we post few wallpapers, then we shouldn't call it a theme. Theme would be more of a term for skinning an application, it would be completely different than Background.

    Agree, but that's how they happen to call them.

    I don't know about anyone else, but I'm loving the new metro design of the Windows site.

    So I just tried out a theme, geez. I don't get why Microsoft decided to take out certain sound events when they could had just removed the .wav file associated with it. The theme I installed has all the custom sounds that it would have with 7, but with 8, only a couple work like the sound that is played when emptying the Recycle Bin. But logon sounds don't work. Why?!
