Who is talking about what then? I was referring to the Zune theme for XP, the shell theme.

It seems that one is talking about possibility to use it, while the other one about neccessity to not have it as default, am I right? :)

Look very nice.
But why not try to make (some Vista Aero) desktop effects? e.g http://www.petri.co.il/images/aero_enabled_1.gif but use other color that vista have. (blue or black, green?)

That "windows" be more transparent?

I like better ReactOS -> http://www.reactos.org/history/10y/pict ... ogo_07.jpg on the start-menu button.

Port that?

looks like it was simply extracted from Windows XP. Mine is actually original and 100% from scratch

i like this one its like a cool mix between XP and Vista but i would replace the logo with Start(white) :)

ps. google chrome has a great design in the incognito mode it would be nice to use it as inspiration for an OS theme

What about the Plastik theme for XP? It's GPL'ed and I have made a quick hack to "brand" it with ReactOS...

I'll post a screenshot asap

EDIT2: I'm going to start work on an msstyle theme influenced by Royale, TangoXP and that Plastik theme. Dunno what it will look like, i tend to be terrible with graphics.
