Okay, I've uploaded the wallpaper at the following link:

http://s58.photobucket.com/albums/g252/cycoced/?action=view&current=ClearXPWP.png&refPage=&imgAnch=imgAnch1

Please not that due to size restrictions, I've uploaded it as a PNG file, to be converted to BMP or JPG on your side.

Cheers!

Pretty good work - a transparent taskbar is def needed though, the default one is very unappealing. Also the default font size if waaay too big

Well I think a taskbar fitting the title-bars would do better.

Great job. The taskbar does seem out of place a little bit but still works OK for the theme.
You can post the wallpaper on your Wincustomize site. When uploading , select, show on my personal page only and it won't go through moderation.

Maybe I am doing something wrong, but when I tried to dowmload this awesome skin, it said that 'A new skin" has been installed', and when I opened WBlinds, there was nothing there? Did something happen to the link? Please let me know as I would love to have this skin!!

NightTrain, I'll upload it on my personal page as well then, I didn't know you could upload stuff like that.
Oh, and thank you again for your help concerning the log off transparency problem I had!

And thanks everybody helse for the kind comments, I'll take your comments into account and will post an updated version in a short while (don't hold your breath though, since vacation time is around the corner for me!)

And concerning the request for a transparent taskbar, I won't do that because it is just ugly. I tried it during development stage, and WB is using pseudo-transparency (as Sysmetrix does) by copying the background behind your transparent taskbar, and it doesn't look good at all, if your taskbar goes over a window for example, it will disappear, replaced by your wallpaper. I for one don't like this effect, too weird for me (and I like weird stuff...).

I think th efont problems are being caused by the TW Cen MT font. This would only be on your system if you had MS Publisher or purchased it from the creator. Otherwise the system replaces it with Arial.

CodF4ther, I've just noticed that as well, I didn't make the font to be installed with the skin. Can I include it in my skin from an intellectual property point of view? I don't want to get sued for that...

Very nice. Great work.... appreciate your efforts and thank you for sharing it with us.

The only thing I'd like to see (and it's already been mentioned) is a 'compact menu' option.

Thanks once again!

It has finally arrived! Haven't given it a test run yet, but the S/S looks great. All your hard work looks like it paid off. If I may request one thing - a compact menu, then it would be perfect for me. Thank you muchly for this.

I must say that it is one of the all-timer bests of Window-blinds history - really simple, and you can't help but love it

I really liked the amount of transparency, which - unlike many other works - didn't affect the useability of the skin. I just wanted something like this to prove one of my friend (who disklikes most of my customized windows themes) that there really ARE some quality stuff out there, which everyone who has ever used windows will find simple and impressive.

5 stars without a doubt!
