themes...

and i thought they could not get worse than win 7. then again i thought they could not get worse than vista and here comes win 7.:p:p

I think that Windows 7 is just fine the way it is, even with the M$ themes and walls... And the OS side is outstanding compaired to previous versions, with outstanding driver database and recognition...

Will have to wait and see the new and "improved" Windows 8, before I will be able to pass judgement on Windows 7, other than atta boys!

I think Windows 8 wont be just a step up like windows 7 was to Vista. I think it'l be quite different. More akin to going from Win2k to XP.

I Think THe Transfer From 7-8 will probably see too much features and another vista, but with speed, but bloated.

bloated but with speed?

I Think THe Transfer From 7-8 will probably see too much features and another vista, but with speed, but bloated.

It can't be faster if it's bloated.

Well in some point I agree. If I'm not that good with Metro I will consider its programs the bloated part.
In general I like the speed too and in some points 8 is better than 7.

By the way,
I see that many on Deviantart still dream of transparency themes.
But looks like we'll have to say goodbye to transparency in the official version (taskbar remains transparent to mess the view).

I don't like third party transparency programs so I'll just go on without transparency.

Also nice.
Too bad you need to patch some dll (always the same problem) to use them.

Mainly Release Preview for XP and Developer Preview for Win7 are themes I was looking for.
I'm gonna see how they look in a VM.

Thanks again.

Here is my own creation, pure windows 8RP plus addons:-
object dock - classic start menu - symetrix - gadgets
It is set for two screens. I made this because I hate blue and each of my systems has similar but different variations - dragon - unicorn - griffon - phoenix

LH screenfirebird-desktop1.png
RH screenfirebird-desktop-LH.png

Themed object dock, firefox, sysmetrix, gadgets, win-amp, classic-start menu not really shown but you can see the start button and that's live tv on the far right.

Hi besb.

Great choice of colors!

I also like gold with a little orange touch (call it orange-gold) but never managed to make/find such themes for Windows or Firefox. I've only made some 7-Zip and Winrar versions.

Thanks for the shiny gold screenshots.
