:#1:My first completed Windows XP Visual Style :)

I worked on it for a few days and was inspired by the new MySpace Design ;)

To have Shadows, download Y´z Shadow.

The Wallpaper is created by deadpxl @ dA "Superbad"

well, i think the 3 window buttons on top right should be visually differentiated even slightly, not with color, but maybe a small black icon depicting its function (minimise, max., close).
Also, the window title text could be made cleaner, and the scrollbar dark blue background doesn't "feel" right. But i really like the scrollbar big yellow buttons. very usable.

thanks!!

Looks quite "special", congratulations. I agree you've got something here. I'll install it and let you know what adjustments could be made.
Already what is good is the contrast and the ergonomy, the quite nice "reduction" and the use of screen space so that buttons are of a decent size.

Anyway i'll get back to you if i still like it after installing it :)

Awesome, thanks a bunch. Heh, looked like something straight out of the 70's and early eighties. Both of which eras are pretty sweet.

Hallo Patrick, danke für den Link. Ist VSB nicht von Andreas? Wird wohl eher kommerziell vermarktet, wie ich gehört habe...

Bilder habe ich noch...aber sooo wenig Zeit :)
Und bei dem Wetter bin ich auch bedeutend weniger vor dem pc

Superb VS. Too bad I don't have XP to use it with.

Any chances you will make other colors available? This blue seems too close to the default Luna theme.

The blue and default xp color scheme aren't really my taste, but this looks really well constructed.

I like it! The only thing that needs work is the shellstyle, the "glossy" bars do not fit the rest.
