I came to browse and see if there were any new visual styles and felt I finally had to say something. I have been downloading and trying visual styles for Many years. I would think the preview pik looked good but when I try it I find that something is wrong like the Big user picture at the top of the start menu or some weird shell style or something.
But I ALWAYS seem to find my way back to this style. I'm not kidding, this has been my style pretty much since the day I downloaded it long ago. I think it is very polished, professional and you have a great eye for detail. I just wanted to properly Thank You for creating it. I am one of the stubborn ones that will be on XP for some time to come and you have made it pleasing to look at. The only other style that comes close is Aquanox by ~cyberchaos05, but the lettering almost matches the highlight color and it is hard to see plus a few other details. I really cannot find any flaws with yours. I see that you added the bmp for the shutdown screen, would that have to be changed with SkinStudio or something. I would love to use it for my shutdown but have no idea how to do it.
Anyway, just wanted to let you know that at least for me out of all the styles out there, was, is and will be the Best. Thank You.

Most attention to detail with highest quality XP visual style I've seen. Well done! Only improvement I see would be larger min,max close buttons and dark font for Start menu cascade highlights. . .

Hey Dustin. I've installed this before and it worked brilliantly.
However I had to 're-do' my PC, and I re-installed this, but it's not functioning as it was before. It gives me the same problem like the guy below. How do I fix this?

Looks to me like you need to patch your uxtheme file. Just search 'uxtheme patch' on google or softpedia and it'll pop up. Make sure you double check your SP version and download the appropriate patch.

it's coming, the light color is proving to be a little difficult. Usually it's the other way around, but there is a black version almost ready.

it's pretty easy, make a horizontal line, put a reflective gradient on it then add a drop shadow :P
