There's minimal, and then there's "why bother?" Windows classic style already has a high contrast black&white color scheme.

yeah, this entry is a waste of time.

Nice and clean... I like minimalist and you've definitely hit the mark. Cool! and don't let the negative posts discourage you.

I knew this skin wouldn't suite everyone, or even many people so the -ve comments are not a surprise

It was inspired by noticing that the catagory was listed as "MOST minimalistic" (at least in some places) - and when I saw that, my perverse sense of humour meant I wanted to see just how minimal something could be and still be usable.

BTW, the Windows classic + High contrast B/W is just that - Black and white, it keeps the standard Windows "theme" where as this has a different style. This also skins the toolbar buttons, animations, compact start menu etc which the High contrast option does not. Try it and see the difference yourself - High contrast still looks unmistakably like standard Windows - this doesn't...well, not as much

Oh, additionally - don't take this skin too seriously. I wanted taking part in the GUIO to be ablout having fun, not just people hoping to win - just like the real Olympics. Think of this as the entry from the small country no one has heard of with just one athlete turning up to join in and have fun

I like your style Sput, very daring and creative. Always willing to step up to a challenge and shout at the top of your lungs 'ok world here I am, take me or leave me, but this is the way I'm going to be!' Bravo!!!

I like it. Reminds me of WFW3.11 meets WinXP

Personally, i can't see myself using this as an everyday theme, but i absolutely love the idea behind it. It has a very artsy feel to it, imho, that looks nice in a screenshot (hopefully better in a full screenshot )

Thanks for the comment fjord...I agree that I wouldn't choose to use this every day either - but then, I wouldn't run a marathon every day either but people do in Olympics LOL

Awesome skin. There's is something about it that allowes me to tolerate the hard colours. I really like the style of buttons, and well, everything. Great skin, one of the few that I can use every day and for everything. Hope you get some reward here in the Olympics.

that teeny tiny lil red border was an interesting surprise.
love the button style.
essencay has the theme spot on! does remind one of wfw3.11 meets xp.
good luck in the competition!

This is really cool...
I have never seen a zero rating before though LOL
Comment #15 Friday, April 16, 2004 7:49 PM
I think all GUIO skins show as a zero rating if viewed through wincustomise - I don't think the rating system is live for the competition. Either that or I really have scored a first with a zero!

"It was inspired by noticing that the catagory was listed as "MOST minimalistic" (at least in some places) - and when I saw that, my perverse sense of humour meant I wanted to see just how minimal something could be and still be usable."
