Looks good, but the all programs menu... wow.. a bit on the bright side. The white letters are very hard to read.
Good theme anyway!

~I did d/load it and while a few things need fixing I liked the color and style. But the top task bars are black on blue and cant see them( you can if you hover over each ) I think it would be worth updating ..

Sad to say, the skins, not just this one, continue to get worse and worse. I mean, pure ugly. I can only assume that a lot of you are doing ACID.

Hello Mr. Ryback....... I just took a look at your skins......... Oh wait..... you haven't made any!!    So..........when you have designed and made some skins, and then achieved over 2 million downloads, you can critisize other skinners. Until then, if you don't like it, don't download it, and please try to grow up and have some respect and manners. We are not charging you money for these you know............

Congratulations of insulting the entire skinning community and making an arse of yourself Ryback. Show a little respect for the free work you're presented to at this site.

I agree with COMMENT#5.(sorry to say BoXXi some people just wake up mad at the world)

Awesome skin! I like dark skins and this is definitely in my top four skin list, along with GT3, Transylvania, and Graphite DX.
I always have to do a little tweaking with Skin Studio to get the colors to work with a variety of apps and this skin has needed very little change at all.
I think the best thing to do with people like Ryback is to ignore them completely as their opinion has no value at all. Constructive criticism is one thing but to personally attack a persons artistic endeavors such as yours, is very mean spirited and he will pay his Karmic debt.

Dear Pirate,
I have no time to make a skin. That's why I purchased Window Blinds. I did not offend the entire community and please have a sense of humour. I'm sure that lots of work goes into making a skin, but more often than not, the skin colour schemes and themes haven't really been great.

For example, Essorant and a few others have done some excellent skins. In fact, Essorant is my favorite. I guess it all comes down to taste and that is in the eye of the beholder. Hard work or not in making skins, the vast majority of skins being presented download are not worth downloading. Come to think of it, the older skins are better than the stuff coming up recently.

Anyway, I'm just making a critique and not trying to hurt anyone's feelings. Sorry if I have

So sorry, I didn't personally attack anyone. And, do I really have to pay a Karmic debt for criticising art? Are you nuts!? Anyway, I think that you are taking my comments a bit too seriously. Lighten up.

The bottom line is that I would like to see some skins out there that I would be happy to download. And please, there is no karmic debt for criticising a skin. GWB should worry about karma, not me.

to critique a work requires first having facts or ideas on how to improve a skin or even sugestions on what you would like to see in a skin ..but to say "dude this is ugly, were ya on acid?" is not a criticizm.. its an insult .....its not that people dont want input on how their works are liked .... but you might try to not come off like a jerk when offering your opinions ... <---insert foot here....

Bryan .. my man this is just to cool.. keep up the good work

What the Eliminator said. 'I can only assume that a lot of you are doing ACID.' isn't exactly a good way to share your thoughts on what you feel about the skins here. Hence my remark. I do have a sence of humor, but skinning and graphic design in general is one of the things that's very important to me, I take pride in my work and it's how I earn my pay. And I bet I'm not the only one in this community. No hard feelings then, criticism is welcome as long as it's constructive.

BoXXi, All I can say is I'm very grateful you found this jewel after all these years! Maybe it happened longer ago than you think....around the time of the "great HD crash of 99"?? Anyway Thx for sharing this with us!

Hey BoXXi I love this skin , but when I look at my pictures I notice a bit of pink on the buttons like search , folders , views . etc. Maybe I need to reboot my machine after switching from one skin to another. Could be my machine too on Windows XP. Otherwise it looks great and is an excellent edition to my Toronto Maple Leafs desktop wallpapers. EDIT- BoXXi I fixed the problem by rebooting my machine. It seemed that parts of another skin was loaded in , when I downloaded and installed yours. It is weird indeed. Anyways great looking skin , awesome use of color!
