List of good styles

Not sure where to put this. Moderators, feel free to move as you see fit. This is just a list of "good" themes people can install, not suggestions for a default theme.

Re: Microsoft will want this to fail

there may be some patents on the algorithms though api can not be covered by patents. API's can be covered by copyright laws. Though there are legal precedents which allow you to provide an identical API but not an identical implementation in code without breaching copyright. Patents potentially co...

I don't think they have any legal reason to sue us. We do not use windows binaries or source in anyway way. We just are implementing the public documented api in our own way. The implementation does not have to be identical just the results(hopefully). I thought i remembered a case where the recrea...

Yeah.... in like next ten years or so, windows isn't stopping their development process you know? Linux/uni...

Korean, Chinese and Japanese are usually written left-to-right in the OS.
