It's very nice for your first blind! It could use a little more originality, a little more of your own character; after all there are so many "Vista" skins floating around. But it is very nice for you first build. Thanks for the download!

This is a nice looking skin but besides the transparency I'm not sure what is so "Vista-style" about it.

Any chance to make it so that when you right click the title bar it rolls it up? Other than that missing feature, it is a very nice skin. Good job!

To date, my favorite of the "transparent" styles.. the titlebar text makes it possible to grab the windows. If this is your first, keep going!

Very good for a first skin. You need to work on your buttons, especially mouse overs. The start menu buttons should be skinned as well. You also need an MDI background. It does weird things without it.

Kevinson you can set this in the Windowblinds Configuration Dialog under User Overrides/Advanced/Right-Click

I especially like the curved feel of the tasks in the taskbar. In fact the whole taskbar looks pretty sweet. I agree with an above poster that your buttons need some more work. They lack "flair," and detract somewhat from the good work on the rest of the skin. Also I like the color you chose.

Simply great. Keep up the good work. I welcome any updates!

Here is a problem I have: I change the fonts to bold through Windows Xp Control Panel (Display, Appearance, Advanced), but every time I reboot my computer they are always in regular form. How can I make them retain their bold characters?

Very Impresive for your first Blind Skin. This is truely the best "Vista" skin I've seen by far.

Good Job, Mate!

V. nice skin - amazing for a first effort. BTW, Lantec, Kevison - the right-click roll-up feature is an acknowledged bug in WB5.
Does anyone know how I can change the font colour of the names of folders that I have added as tool bard to my main windows taskbar? If I can change that to white from black then VistaXP will be perfect for me.

Oh yeah, the log off and reboot buttons in the start menu don't work for me - I'm using a Konfabulator widget instead.

To fix the Bold font problem, try your windowblinds options. I had this same problem with the walpaper changing on me. This skin could be font specific and if so you have to tell window blinds to turn that feature off.
Anyways I Hope this works for ya.

Oh yeah I have a comment about this skin too. The start button is kinda to big and dull for my likings but I love the glass titlebars..

Can you provide details on how to achieve this? I will appreciate that, as I am not too familiar with the program..
Thanks
