Hi, just want to know, where did you got those IMAGES on the STARTMENU? because they all look like the images of my old Luna Blue theme, and the one on the quicklaunch, the icon of IE and the SHOWDESKTOP are like the icons on my theme when you change the color.

OK, I downloaded this theme just to see the graphics, the one that you are using are the one that I use for my XP Theme. I can prove this, the Startmenu images, the quicklaunch images, the Log Off Menu, and the Shutdown Menu. especially the Unsupported Feature that I made that shows when DesktopX doesn't support the option and some images I think are from thecat's work. These images are from my XP theme.

I am the only one that senses the incredible irony of this situation? If this is true, then you have bigger fish to fry sir, as it is my understanding that Microsoft is planning to actually make money from your hard work on this theme.

It seems that some "authors" thinks that they are the XP ownners, acusing others to rip what they have ripping before. Come on! You must to be kidding!

hmmm. Well at the end of the day all images and icons etc are all the copyright of the Microsoft corp. When I made my Luna themes I made my image templates, and did do some work on the images too. OK that besides the point, marc the thing is you know as well as i do everyone is ripping each others graphics off, and at the end of the day we none OF US own the materials we use in the Luna theme.

ok Sofie likely has used graphics that were pre made to order, but at the end of the day the images belong to microsoft,. At the end of the day too, it is Microsoft we all took from Also the fact as treetog says Microsoft were hoping to sell XP with Luna but after the way These Desktop shell replacements on Luna are being flogged I am sure by the time XP is actually released no one will use luna any more thanks to our short sitedness.. I posted a thread asking XP 'Authors' to move on and give poor old XP a break for once and bring some thing new and original in to the community, because the words NEW cannot be found in XP

Welcome everybody. Now I am here. Thank you for your very interesting comments... to mcs2k1, AJCrowley, Treetog, thecat2000 and to the original Luna creater...


Yes the theme created fully based on WinXP by mcs2k1. 2 other theme (Blue and Homestead) in 800 x 600 res has been posted to Deviantart with full credit given to you and stated on the theme info.

I just want to share with the other citizen. 1024 x 768 is too small in my PC... so enjoy my tweaked version of your works.

Sorry for my English.

and... Be Happy!

Enjoy.

I can't believe this is a Top 10 download... Sorry, but the whole XP-madness is getting on my nerves... But well, at least there are 50 % non-XP things there.

Sofie, you should NOT be giving credit to any one BUT Microsoft for Luna. The graphics file even marc used were indirectly obtain from Luna UI Enhanced that I created last March !! and my other releases since then. marcs graphics were not created by him alone.. If your goinf to rip people off for graphics who came before you, then at least get the credits right.

As for this being in the Top Ten...That didn't suprise me either considering it is XP again.

Look great too!
Pitty 99% of the designs i cannot use, since no creative mind is thinking of those that have a 1280x1025 display
As soon as there is one, i will use it!

I like it sofie, I don't care who originally created the "look", and I think thecat2000 gets "xp envy" anytime anyone other than her makes an xp skin that gets top downloads...keep up the good work.

Skill: zero
Credibility: Zero
Irritation Ratio: 9.9

Sheesh.

LOL XP 'Envy' Thats a new one.. LOL..sorry. Just found that amusing Considering I use the REAL Windows XP as well why would I envy any of the XP uploads we see every day. ? BESIDES this all my own XP themes are good quality just as good as any one eleses. Thats because I am a perfectionist

Comment #18 Thursday, July 05, 2001 3:48 PM
I didn't say you envied the xp uploads themselves, my point is you get irritated when someone other than you makes an xp theme. I notice you have to make a comment on every xp theme on this site. I don't care if you use the REAL Windows XP. That wasn't my point.

..well some people have things to say you know ? as it is my interest to look at windows Xp themes then i'll comment on them. Either way you can be assured that my Comments are not biased, and If I grade them also, it is I can assure you a fair vote. I have nothing against other people doing XP themes either, and actually work with a few of them and share notes and files to create themes with. So nope I am not irritated, only by people who assume they think they know how my mind works.
