HI , Grovin ! Watcha doin here ? ? Great WB, man .. well impressive...

I love the taskbar ... especially when I change my wallpapers so much .. I cannot see any probs with it ...

( I have recently started on my own WB , heaven help us ..... progress so far .. The logoff !! ) hehe

Good Work ... now how about a sidebar to match , or have you done that already ? !!

so many years using windows these mac skins always annoy me with the buttons on the "wrong" side.

this one definitely worth it though. great job.

first let me say thanks for this nice skin

I am having a issue with it.

on some programs it will not close out of it. I have to go to the taskbar and right click then click on close.

the programs are Windowblinds, Task Manager, IE7. Are just the ones I tried.oh FF closed just fine
I did a restart and still the same so I changed the skin and all was good went back to this skin and the same thing will not let me close out that window(s)

at first instill all was good after about 4 to 6 hours that is when I noted I was unable to close out

Please help with this
Thanks

Hi there -

thanks a lot for your comments!


@AiTakahashi:
Sorry to hear that - what kind of flashbacks?

@mike b1954:
Nice to see you around - what I'm doing here? Well I joined 2 months before you...
No sidebar yet by the way - but I will look out to your blinds in the DS screenshot section..

@Nutshell69:
Sounds like you switched to Vista?!

@kin242 & bilbo1930:
Great you like it!

@zakai1369:
Actually that was what I thought first, too, when Mac styles started being ported to wb.
But now I can't think of using buttons at the right side anymore: It's so much more practical on the left side - all the other stuff is there, too, like menus and toolbars.
Save a file your working on - menu at the left, close/minimize the application afterwards, just click on top of that. Open a file and maximize the window - same. Sounds like a tiny difference, but if you're working a lot on your PC it's so much better...

@DisturbedComputer:
That's bad news - it worked for me, so I'm not sure where the problem is. Are you using windowblinds 4, 5 or 6? Normally buttons on the left side should work except maybe for applications that use their own skinning engine. Have you experienced this with other skins, too, that have the close button on the left side?

@wimpy:
I'd agree, but there are a lot of people who just like the pure Vista look...

Sorry, I was just being silly, but the smileys don't seem to be working right now, so I guess it looked like I was being serious! I was referring to the PC Tools top-based drop-down menu design, as you've used here. I used to use PC Tools as a shell replacement for Win95, back in the mid-90's.

Would be great if this was WB6 and Vista compatible, as we approach nearly a year of vista's release, and 2 months of wb6 release.

Not everyone has vista.. in fact.. less than 20 % of user at WC come here on Vista.. If you want to blame anyone for incompatibilites a year later.. blame MS... not the skinner.


------------------------------

Decent theme, has some inconsitencies but I can see with some practice your future themes have the potential to be very good.

I have WB 6 on XP Pro
I just applied Gizmo with close and Transparency on left and i am able to close.
and now I tried iSkin and I am able to close.. with close on left

Now I went back to your Skin and I Can Not close out or max or minimize

the only way I can is to go to the taskbar and close min or max their

I doubt only 20% use vista.

No - no vista for me - i like my xp and all that comes with it.

I have 2 laptops - and for some reason - i have difficulties with running WB on it.

it works - for the most part - but then - it will not work - and quite frankly makes my system almost unusable

Too bad too - I am a big fan of Stardock and their products - just my systems now make it difficult for me to use.

Awesome skin! I especially like that there's no taskbar. Only trouble I have is the left hand close, min, max buttons don't work in AOHell. (AOL) Cool skin tho!

I am a big fan of Cerulean and their products


Isn't that the people that make trillian? What does that have to do with this skin? Or did I miss something?
