not bad at all, nice clean-looking design, only thing I didn't so much like was the start menu look (the two arrows) and I'd suggest the arrows on the start menu panel itself switch or something, the word down being used in shutdown looks odd beside an icon pointing down being used for the logoff one... (I realize its mostly semantics, but feels, inconsistant to look at that way)

wow, you have made a lot of great visual styles. Compared to other artists, what I admire most about your styles is that they seem to be very clean and complete, while some artists seem to leave out the small details you don't.

Just a little bug: The Control Panel window background is grey, but the bg picture is still the basic blue one.

I'm totally digging this theme. Matches my WA2 skin quite nicely: [link]
I don't suppose there is, or soon will be a WA2 version of this?




If not I'll probably mod my own to match [for my own personal use].

good work, very nice
some cricits though :)
you should use a hover effect for the buttons, change the hover font color for the titles of the boxes in the sidebar of explorer, and imo the task bar should have something blue... somewhere :)
