this is an excellent skin, I'm using it right now and it's very easy on the eyes,
the taskbar & taskbar buttons are excellent, I love the scrollbar thumb & arrow buttons and one feature I like particularly is the start button: it's nice & big & oversized - I'm a fan of the oversized startbutton feature, I don't see it used enough in alot of skins and it looks great. I noticed that the vertical taskbar hasn't been skinned (along with the vert.taskbar buttons, vert tray arrow & area, etc.), any plans on adding that in the future?

Anyways congrats on a great wb skin!

fantastic skin. . . the toolbar icons are masterful (actually, the whole thing is!!) Spot-on perfect!! I already had Frois, but I don't know how I missed this one at the gui contest page.

I'm looking very forward to seeing more of your work soon!!!

Hmmm ...... the start button is the only thing I don't like. It covers part of the status bar in my browser and there happens to be something in that corner I need to see.

If you were to make a version with a start button that went 'straight across' and didn't stick up above the taskbar, it would be perfect.

Other than that though, it truly is a masterful skin.

You know without sounding greedy or whiney, this isn't far from the truth.

A nice compact sub-skin with maybe a basic S T A R T straight across as a wonderful option.

As it is with windows maximized the Status Bar info is covered on my puter!

Oh well and what the hell, I love this blind as is!

OK, maybe it's just me, but when the frack do any of you fabulous skinners plan on making a skin that fracking works on Vista? This XP crap is getting old.

Good skin, but it doesn't work on Vista for crud.

Bling! Post it! That looks good. Do the long names on the start menu still get cut off? Dude even has Trillian A! Nice. Everyone take notes.

I too am running Vista Ultimate & I do not see the problem JRSCCivic98 is mentioning. It looks great! There isn't anything under the start button on the taskbar to see, unless you need to know when it says "Done". The long names on the start menu getting cut off is a Vista issue not a WB skin issue. The Vista application can be tweaked so again...not WB's issue. Maybe you can make a Vista skin for us to admire.

Dexter, this is beautiful work! Thank you for making it to share with us.

No, it's a skin issue. The menu is not wide enough to display the entire name. If you have Ultimate you should apply Aero and if you don't see an immediate difference in start menu width size then there's something wrong with you. These guys make skins that use the same start menu widths that XP uses. This will not work with Vista. They need to start working with Aero start menu sizes to make a difference. I've basically wasted HD space running WB on my system because I haven't found a single skin that I want to downgrade my Aero look to. It's really a shame too because a lot of these skins I would run in a second when I was on XP.... now with Vista, not so much. Also, the search field doesn't line up right. I'm hoping skinstudio 6 will get people to make more Vista specific skins, but in the end it boils down to the designer not running Vista so they have no drive to make it for Vista.

BTW, WTF is wrong with the quoting system on this silly ass site? SD can't even get that working right. :lame:
