Kind of useless, considering that you can just disable WindowBlinds... I agree with Max. There is really no point.

I guess because some people don't like Windows XP's classic theme, so this person designs this theme to make XP classic looks like Windows 98.

For those who miss's highly recommended...but since it doesn't work then why don't you just change your appearance to a classic windows look?

For me, reason for it is so that I can have the classic look and still let WindowBlinds skin the Start Bar. Switching to Classic in XP unloads XP and prevents the custom skinning of the start bar. At least on my computer.

This is Matt Davis, the creater of this skin.

I created this thing way back in 1999, when Windows 95 was still in wide use. The purpose of this WindowBlinds 2 "personality" was to give users of Windows 95 the gradient titlebars of Windows 98. It was the second WindowBlinds skin I ever made, and I think I only made about 2 and a half skins total .

The skin got lost in the shuffle when reorganized, as well as my old username and password, and I honestly thought I would never see this skin again. Seeing it now brings back memories of the first time I discovered WindowBlnds

For those who can't use this skin, it's because it was submitted the way wincustomize used to be set up - the description, preview image, and zip file inside a master sip file. Just save the downloaded zip somewhere, and open it. Inside you will find another zip file, which contains the actual UIS info and skin. I think you can just save this zip into your Windowblinds program directory and install it as usual from the WindowBlinds dialog. I hope the batch files still work, too. This was designed for WB 2 running on Win9x; I haven't tried it on 2000/XP. Please be sure to read the Readme file inside the skin's zip file (inside the master zip that you download).

Any chance this could be rehashed to work on Vista I cannot get a download to work, I need one to get dreams to run on classic look which they wont unless its a WB skin .
