lol, yes; did get into a heated discussion over at Neowin.

RC3 is on the way, I'm now starting to add new colours. This will take some time as I am not using the recolour function in StyleBuilder.

Thanks for the feedback!

Been using this for a while now. Love it! Check out my desk in Windows screenshots! I've also been watching the Neowin forum. Talk about shark infested waters.[link]

Looks great, but the sliders are waaay too tiny? Weren't they larger in RC1? They were perfect there.

Any chance of getting a version that will work with style XP. I know it is a bloated pile of crap, but I only use it so I can properly preview all of my themes. I use it along with UXTheme patcher so I don't have to keep it running.

Absolutely awesome visual style! Would it be possible to have an option for the standard height taskbar please? MSN desktop search causes the activation area for the start menu and for applications in the taskbar to be shifted up a few pixels, can be quite irritating.

This theme rules!! I use it i my work desktop, it's so clean and simply. the only problem is solved in this release: the IE hover.
I think your themes "survive" in my desktop much longer than most of other. :D

Yes double-click the msstyle!

Please re-download if you were one of the first to grab it - I've fixed the statr button centering problem.

For the people having trouble applying this theme with Stylexp try clicking on the XPMC.msstyles file in the XPMC folder.

Great theme btw ;)
