Ash08,

I like this one but I think it could use a little "tweaking" to make it more usable.

1) Start Menu is a bit large. Personally, I would like to see it a bit smaller in size.
2) Mouseovers on the System Buttons don't all work, e.g., the "minimize" button with IE displays the "throbber" icon but with a system window it displays a folder icon.
3) The first system button doesn't seem to do anything with a left click and the mouseover display is the "throbber" icon in IE and a folder/program icon in a system window.
4) Text size for IE text boxes, e.g., this one I'm using to type my comment, is incredibly small and barely readable.

Overall design is great. (I'm a sucker for skins with window borders, hehe) Do take my comments as positive criticism. I think this skin has lots of potential and would be worth the effort to make the necessary changes.

------- Hey There - Me Again! -- Fonts are'nt showing up too good as I write this -could be me? BUUUUT,since I really go for the "DARK" side in skins,I say you did a Real Good job here.Nothing super fancy and everything can be read meaning no black font on dark gray,etc. I LIKE IT and you get an 'attaboy' for this one!--

It needs finishing. It looks like it isn't quite done. The start button looks like a slightly different windows 2000/winxp-with-no-msstyle-applied start button, the graphics at the top of the start panel look like they end too abruptly (some rounding or alpha blending might help the edges) The circles are a bit aliased, etc. Keep it up, though. I think you are on the right track but look at some other popular skins and ask yourself what makes their graphics better than yours? Because I think it is more a matter of better quality graphics than design although the design could use a bit of help but not too much.
If you are using photoshop and have questions I can try to help you . email @ meat@grave(NO.SPAM)stone.net (remove the (no.spam) , of course)
Hope this is a constructive comment that you can take something from.

-Update to above comment.-
It looks like you've made a TON of WB skins and many of them very nice. You seem to stick with the same style start button, so I guess it's by design and not by accident .
Anyway, apparently you know your way around *some* graphics program. Don't take my previous comment to condescendingly.

Thanks Hapkido for your positive criticism deathb0x, the font is hooge 05_53.

meat i do NOT take your comments condescendingly. Yes I know this skin needs some tweaking. But it was one of my earlier skins

You seem to stick with the same style start button


Yes that is by design I do not want the OS to fully lose its identity. I stick to the xp flag icon as long as it does not look awkard with the rest of the skin.

But I am really very busy right now! So it will be a long time before I update this one

Anyway I got some constructive criticism for the first time Keep it up. It really helps me improve my skins.
