Hey, I don't know what's going on here. This skin is almost an exact duplicate of essorant's Caracal Windowblind skin.

Essorant's (commercial) site was taken down (apart from email link) by him. Here's the notice why: "Sales direct from my website are no longer available. This is due to people publishing the links to the suites on Warez websites. Any new requests for my Premium skin packs and queries about existing purchases should be made by email using the link at the top of the page (tim@essorant.com). It is unlikely that I will be publishing any further premium suites here, but any new skins will be available from the Stardock and WinCustomize websites. (Essorant - 2007)" He has a site on dA http://essorant.deviantart.com/

Boo hoo! Pirates downloaded something they would never have paid for in the first place! Anyhow. The shadows around windows are broken. You can even see it in the screenshot. Square shadows on round windows. You can't expect people to buy an incomplete product.

I've bought vstyler's prowler wb. That is worth it. You can't keep putting out mediocre crap, call it a master skin by stardock design and expect people to pay for this. There are so many free ones that look a hundred times better than this and they only get one or two stars. Don't know what you people are smoking but I will buy some!

I've always thought this was a nice skin, although not quite my cup of tea. That's ok, the world is not here to cater to my personal preferences, nor should it be. Thank you for continuing to offer the WB-only versions of these, I think it's a great idea.

There's no way I'd pay for this, and no way would I'd give it 5 stars. If you would like to know what a master skin looks like these days, take a look here...WWW Link Now that's what I call master skins...And well worth the price tag.

While I do agree this skin is in need of touching up, it however is far more advanced even in it's current state than hyperdesk. First off, hyperdesk is a glorified MSStyles that has yet to support Vista, let alone the upcoming Windows 7. While the previews may look good you may find them to be misleading. And before you ask yes I am speaking from experience. When I saw DarkMatter I shat bricks and instantly formatted to XP just to be disappointed in many ways. It has potential but MSStyle on XP is so very limited. But I'll stop myself there, otherwise this will turn into another mud slinging contest.

you're diminishing the association of the term 'quality'...with 'masterskin'...a pity.. people should have an expectation of a masterskin being flawlessly executed...& complete ...with flair...pizzaz....and cutting edge design....something really special...this is being lost...
Stylishly sleek with its fierce visual style

i've had this skin quite some time and it is well worth the price of admission! calling this skin crap is pretty pathetic especially by the people saying it here. tim has posted many, many skins for free on this site over the years and deserves the right to make a few bucks for his time and effort. before you complain about a anyone's master skin, make a few of your own.

Once again, this skin is being made available as a master skin for people who do not want to purchase the entire MyColors theme.

I don't really know for sure but I would be extremely surprised if it didn't include both an XP and a Vista version.

This is just a Windowblinds skin. If you buy the Mycolors theme you get icons and widgets too
It's for XP?
There are 2 substyles one for XP and one for Vista.

This skin has been one of my favorites since it first appeared. While there are a lot of pleasing free blinds out there you can use, this is worth the price to me. I don't mind subsidizing a skinner who turns out elegant, usable blinds that I enjoy.
