Not my style, but good work. And bollocks to those who are "offended". I don't think anyone is forcing them to use it. They don't like something about it, they can make their own.

Xscorpx-
I am perfectly agree with you, to impose the things it is wrong under all the points of view.
This is worth in every civil Nation.
To show our own way of intending the things however it is wrong if publicly done, when it has a meaning "explicit."
The sense "explicit" of the things can be private only (not for all).
This category includes all of the law protects, because to guardianship of the liberty the penal law is set.

BlueDev-
Is it enough not to consider a non shared thing simply?
Many sites on the browser as dangerous sites are labeled for educational motives.
Have you ever used the parenteral controls?
Some sites are classified as "of occultism content" and you cannot open them for the guardianship of your children.
If many authors began to make skin as this, stardock would risk to enter in this category.
The parenteral controls are an option of the Internet Security more diffused of the world: Symantec.
20 milion of users? .......... may be.
Then you should explane your solution to them, not to me.
I ask you to read what I have anticipated to xscorpx.

djefi� ,all religeons are cults...you cant single out 1 just because you personally are offended by it.Its typical of people like you to decide because YOU dont want to see something...that I shouldnt be allowed to either.

and...for your information,the swastika was around way before the Nazis used it for their own purposes.So are the Tibetans and Native Americans no longer allowed to use it?Hmmmmmmmmm...the alphabet is used for many terrible things,maybe we should be afraid of it.

Silly huh?

Hei Brainiac,

it is not one personal point of view of mine.
The Satanism is a crime pursued by the law, in my country and I believe in many, many, many others.
The Satanic rites end with the human sacrifices, my dear.
In Italy, every year they die quite a lot innocent people and no (adolescents) on their altars and many people go in prison.
Seem me, only a little, that you fall from the clouds.
You don't probably remember yourself that the wife of Roman Polansky has been killed, because he has told this thing in one film of his what happens, "Rosemary's Baby ".
Then, that cult is?
I ask it to you!
Hallowin is a tiny joke, they tell me and it doesn't have any similarity.

This is yours, thanks >

hmmm...i knew crap like this was gonna be posted lol.Yes his theme has satanic symbols or symbols that could be pertained to that religion but SO WHAT! its a theme to download or NOT download.btw djefi� you obviously know absolutely nothing about satanism and i think you just watch too much tv esp. with your rosemary's baby reference hehe.satanic rituals do not end with human sacrifice nor any other sacrifice.they dont even believe in satan (which im sure you didnt know and will argue differently).i dont know were you live nor do i care,this is the internet not your country so...maybe you have some strange people in your lands killing people in the name of satan but that doesnt mean anything or have anything to do with this theme.do a little research on satanism and you will see its not so bad-you might even like it

sorry but i live in a free country so HAIL SATAN ~

Great skin. Great band. Great album. Hail Satan.

For those who are "upset" by it, its simple.
If you dont like it, dont use it.

i love this skin.

Perhaps maybe others from bands like: Deicide, Cradle Of Filth, Darkthrone or Cannable Corpse.

I am a Satanist (or at least consider my self one) and this fits in with my beliefs. Great work and f**k those who dont like it.

Explore life for yourself. Find your own way. Ignor books that preach hate(bible, koran and other books by god). You are a God not some mythical being in a mythical place. And remember "Do What Thou Wilt".

Great Moon Doggy!

do you know what I don't bear of you?
I ask you a question, because you know............... you believe to make the accounts with the paper in the sleeve in a poker's game.
Which is difference between me and you?
Here I don't bear that you don't know this, because I know it.
Do you know why I know it?

djefi� - Not to be rude, but you're very uninformed.

Satanism is not a crime, in your country or most others. Nowhere in Satanism are human sacrifices called for - stop confusing horror movies with reality.

Lots of innocent people die every year from Satanism, huh? Well at least here in the USA, there has never been a SINGLE murder in the name of Satanism. Compare that with your mainstream religions like Christianity, Islam, etc.

Maybe you should read up on it so you have a clue what you're talking about: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Satanism

Or, maybe do a little research and realize that the myth of satanic murder is just another form of blood libel used by one group to discredit another: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blood_libel

I'm no satanist, but all religious people are deeply misinformed and have no basis or understanding in their own false and stupid beliefs, so doing a little homework will do all of you fools some good.

Well, this skin seems to stir up a few things, doesn't it?

I'll give a link to the wallpaper later on, since I have the bookmark on another computer. It has been created by a guy on deviantart, don't remember who though, I'll tell ya later...

Concerning the skin, or exactly what it reprensents, I can't stop but laughing for one little thing: People seem upset that this is up on wincustomize and it does the apology of satanism, which is dangerous for kids because satanism symbolizes hatred (oh yeah, and antisemitism it seems as well). I don't see these guys complaining about skins with subjects centered on guns or on how many people you can kill in less than 5 minutes, such as themes on Halo, Doom or Quake...
In a nutshell, a drawing of a goat's head with what seems to be hebrew's characters is bad, but guns and dead bodies everywhere is good. One must love our society...

The funniest thing is: I'm not a satanist, I believe in Jehovah (yes siree bob). I won't state here what I think about established religions, because this is not the place, but to me they all prevent humans from reaching God by creating some sort of pointless hierarchy, and adding dogmas to the bible which are not needed.
The Bible suffices to itself, I don't need someone to tell me don't do this or that, the Bible is just plain common sense (for example: "You won't kill" and easy to understand stuff like that, which all religious guys seem to forget when appropriate...)

I'm not skinning things to hear "Holier than thou" speeches from people I don't know, hidding behind screen names and not knowing who I am. If you can't take the skin, move along and download something else, it's that simple.
As far as I'm concerned, I fail to see where this skin is offending. Except if the hebrew symbols are offending (I didn't even know these where jewish symbols), but I don't think so.

These are just drawings for crying out loud! It reflects the death metal art as it was back in the late 80s early 90s, that's all.

Now to some trivia facts:
Deicide's guitarist is catholic.
Slayer's volcalist Tom Araya is catholic.

As a finishing note, something to think about: If you believe in Satan, you do believe in God. Who would be stupid enough to choose Satan then? The only interesting thing about satanism is the shock value it has (well, less in Europe than in the US it seems). Oh, and Haloween themed skins are far more offending than this skin, since Haloween is a satanist event, do some reserch on that one, so give me a break...

That was a long and boring post wasn't it?

Thanks for all the nice comments and support to all of you!

Hey cycoced, I love the theme, even though I was never a big Morbid Angel fan back in the day. Looks great and very well put together. I would also like to thank everyone who has posted comments in this thread, I needed a good laugh for the day lol. I'm gonna have to agree with I.R. Braniac's comments on this theme (as well as a few others) I think everyone here is getting a little worked up over a whole lot of nothing. Seems like we've completely missed the point here. I don't remember the description for this theme saying "I was feeling evil the other day and was hoping to push some hatred off on some short sighed people". I believe it said "This is a tribute to one of the most influencing Death Metal albums of all time, from Morbid Angel."

Oh, that's right, it's about A BAND FROM THE 80's!!!! so maybe you should go give them a call and complain. I'm sure they've heard it all before. Tell me, if an album (which this theme's artwork is based on) offends you as bad as this theme does, do you go to the store and buy it just so you can take it home and complain about it? Doubtful, so if you don't like it don't use it. I don't see anyone protesting the holiday themes. That causes religious conflict right? The funny part about that is those themes are actually directed puposfully toward a religous idea and this theme is just a tribute to a band. I was amazed. I was actually expecting to see this response when the GWARmour theme got posted on the GUIChamps.

Hey nyteinc, you are spot on, but I'm not surprised since you must be educated and know how to read, which seems to become a rare gift nowadays...
As far as the GWARmour (excellent skin) is concerned, I don't see anything that can be misinterpreted. I mean there are no signs of satanism or letters other than Roman ones, it's neat. Moreover, it displays skulls and blood, so you can't go wrong with this kind of design, it's safe, nothing to worry about. Note that I like the GWARmour skin a lot, it is beautifully crafted, I'm just placing it in the context of the thread going on here, that's all.

As of today, this skin rates a whooping 6... come on guys, it can go lower than that! It has a goat' skull in it!

Oh, that reminds me, I had two questions: (1) The top of your start button only appears correctly on mouseover, otherwise the top is chopped off - any thoughts on that? (2) Any chance of a full sized start menu version?

Once again, thanks much for sharing this skin

-Afterthought- also can't wait to see the update for ClearXP and the Lena WB. If that's anything like your IP it's gonna rock hard - but not in an evil way

Comment #60 Tuesday, November 21, 2006 3:08 AM
Nyteinc, thank you for the nice comment!
As far as the start button is concerned, there is no other way under WindowsXP for having a large start button but to use glyph image with the start button (or at least that's how I do it, if there is another way, please anybody let me know...). To put it clearly, the chopped start button you see is the actual start button. It becomes "full" when you mouse over it since this event triggers the display of the glyph image, making the start button complete. I've let it as is since I'm thinking forward (Vista), and I'm seriously hoping this OS will allow the use of a big start button without this tricky process, but we'll see then, won't we?

=> So that's not a bug.

By the way:
