Not sure if just me, the right click context menus are blank in winamp, I have to exclude it from Windowblinds to get it back.

Words cannot express how excited I was to see an update to my absolute most favorite WB ever! Acrylic has been a staple on my desktop since GUIO 2006. No matter how many different blinds I tried, I always reverted back to Acrylic.

The Win7 version is awesome. Thank you for this!

I have to express my slight disappointment in the XP update, though.
In the XP version the toolbar icons and animations were 100x better in the original...both of which I set to to use the originals. Some of the other graphics almost seem rushed and plain compared to the great planning and care that went into the original.

While I appreciate and welcome the update fo XP...I won't ever get rid of or stop using the original.

@ 1mishell1: many thanks. @ Nomad529: thanks a lot for your kind. About your disappointment, I see your down points are all based on XP parts, well that why after almost 10 years, I don't care about XP anymore, there's two newer OS's ahead, but it's don't mean I rushed the XP exclusive bit's, the results look like the are because I have a different point of view for those XP bits and I wanted them to look like are now, the same way many liked the new bits, I knew some wouldn't, some would stay stuck to the original skin design, for this same reason I didn't replace Acrylic, instead I made another skin, Acrylic 7, even the name suggest that the focus would be Windows 7, as I said to another user @ DevianArt, I will leave the original Acrylic on its original state for all XP users, they can grab it here @ WC and I'll upload it @ DeviantArt too. I'm also sure it's the last time any user face this kind of disappointment with my visual styles as I no longer support XP. Thanks you again for your kind and support Dani

Many thanks once again for supporting my work @Nomad529: Thank you very much for your kind and comment About you disappointment, the skin name already tells that my focus was the Windows 7 OS, I don't really care about XP anymore and it's quite hard to keep skins with sub-styles for 3 OS's while Window 7 and Vista bring lots of new features, XP is locked in the past, even with WB new features. The skin "Acrylic 7" is not a update for the original Acrylic from 2006, it's a "remake, a new skin that now reflects my idea for this UI now days, that's why the toolbars and many other parts for XP are different, I won't touch the original Acrylic, this way XP users that like it can continue using it, you can have booth

I probably shouldn't have used the word 'disappointment' since this is my #1 all-time favorite skin ever!

I know everything is advancing to 7 now but for some of us, XP isn't going anywhere anytime soon. For those of us that do still use it it pains us to see skins being released that aren't fully compatible. I'm not knocking the effort because it is clearly there when one looks at how awesome the new 7 Acrylic is!

Guess I'm more "disappointed" all my machines aren't running 7!

Thank you once again for all you do and contribute to the skinning community. Please keep 'em coming!

Perfect 10 - Outstanding work!
Comment #59 Wednesday, March 03, 2010 8:15 AM
This is great! This is the first blind that is even usable (not to mention that it's awesome as well). Appreciate the effort put into all the other blinds, but why do I get the impression that there's a complete absence of taste here at WC? Stylistic eyesores all over the place... I really miss the quality blinds that were available for Vista...
