Hi FilkoSE....I just got to say wow. What a great skin, even for an experienced skinner, this would be a great skin. I really don't understand the 4 rating that someone gave this skin, except that they rated it based on the screenshot only. This skin is complete, except toolbar icons and shell animations and it has been put together very well. It has a consistent theme throughout and surprisingly, in a good way, considering the colors, easy on the eyes. This skin properly uses Titlebar Text background, hiding of user icon and it's a UIS1+ skin to boot, which means it should run smoother and faster on a system than if it were a UIS2 skin. Since it doesn't reflect in the ratings, because of that ridiculously low 4 rating, I gave this skin a 9 for it's neat graphics, ease of use and solid, practically error free effort. The only thing I would look at is the vertical taskbar....a bane to all skinner ....there is considerable banding of the graphics there. Outstanding Job

Too clarify on my rating this a 9. Normally I don't announce what I give for a rating, I only did so, because of the 4 hiding a more realistic rating for this skin. Had there been no 4 rating at all, I would've still rated this skin a 9.

Sorry for my continuing on here, but just so folks know what I think a skin that deserves a 4 rating is....

Skin isn't going to break anything. Can be recognised for what it is a GUI replacement, nothing more. This skin has issues with it, but these issues can easily be fixed. This skin if someone would've had it tested it prior to uploading would have rated much higher. There is some quality to the graphics. A 4 is a basic skin with errors.

Thanks a lot Essencay.

Yeah, I agree. The vertical taskbar is a big pain in the but. I tried to work on the Start button, but as far as I know, there isn't an option for vertical layout. That's why for the vertical taskbar to look normal, it must be expanded at least 4 times.

Thanks for reporting here all your troubles with it.

Excelent skin FilkoSE. I agree with our friend Essencay. That skin never deserved a 4.
