Great job on the skin, it's clear you did spend a lot of time on this one! Just a little more work for the rounded corners will really put it over the edge. Thanks for sharing this skin!

If you go into your blinds program....User overides...Advanced settings....Click on the down arrow, you can add that feature to any skin...

It is very clear that you spent alot of time on this. This is an awsome skin. I like uniqueness of the start button. But the only thing that I probably don't like is that the log off and turn off buttons are out of place from where they need to be. But it is an excellent skin and I can tell you put hard work into it. Good Job My Friend.

this is the best windows vista i've seen great job mate (how did you make the metal affect???)

no glass anywhere !!!!!!

The jagges are a bit nasty
The mouse over on the taskbar (not good) can just about see it???

Love the skin.

When I click on control panel, I get a error mesage.
Parse error '<' at line 1.
control panel neve pops up.
Then i change the skin to any other windowblind skin and it works again.
Am I the only one with this problem.

This is a great skin and i can see why it took you very long time to make. I like the idea of turning Mac into Vista which is a brilliant idea. However, I am not using thin skin now, not because it's not good but there are other skins that i like better. For future realease, i'd like to see this skin has trasparant border, colored max-min-close botton glow (red? or following vista colors), colored start botton glow and 3D minimized bar.

i've never been a fan of brushed metal, but this is slick! very tight. good job. It's smooth all across. You should take care of those corners, and add verticle task bars

Overall, an elegant and efficient design. You may want to pay special attention to these details for a future update:

1.) In a maximized window, there is a dead space of about 1-2 pixels that needs to be filled.
2.) Per-pixel blending on the rounded corners would help.
3.) Instead of glowing buttons as suggested earlier, have you considered making the actual icon(s) IN the buttons glow? That's something I have not seen done well, yet.
4.) You may also want to consider including a sub-style that has a smaller Start button. Just for people who still like the "traditional" XP style for Windows.
5.) Consider people who also prefer having the Taskbar arranged at the sides (vertically). There are few, on average, but they MUST be taken into account.

So far, this skin is rating VERY high on my list of faves. I can't wait to see the idea pushed to its full potential!

Logoff/Shutdown buttons are made at the under the All Programs menu by me on purpose, the two buttons are really not working Normally.

Perhaps there is a communication problem here in regard to the "Logoff/Shutdown" buttons? or perhaps not? hehe The issue which people have brought up isn't in reference to the location of the buttons but rather the "activation" point. Simply put, when you click on either button, nothing happens. To open the Logoff or Shutdown dialogs you have to click your mouse far to the left of the buttons under the Places frame. This is something that needs to be adjusted. I hope this helps clear up any possible confusion.
