The Aero+ theme isn't his, that's one of his favorites. I do agree it's a pretty good theme though.

As for 2.3, I've already commented on it before it was released. YES!

Well that's good at least.

Now I can stop hating him for being so damn talented :p

You're an absolute champion.

I'm looking forward to 2.4 when you get time >.< As others have observed, you have just made this better with each release (a noteworthy achievement indeed).

EDIT::
Was looking through some of your other deviations. I particularly love the Aero+ theme. If ever you choose to take a swipe at W8 in the same fashion, make sure you tell me so I can install it :o

EDIT2::
Did you make the banner for the steam group or is it auto generated?


Thanks a lot! As Excelsis mentioned, Aero+ isn't mine. I've never released a Windows theme but I have done some concepts.

I put the group avatar together with the Steam icon Auroka shared with me. The wall of avatars is a standard group feature with the new community.

Finally installed this skin on Windows 8. Loving it so much. :)


I'm happy to hear that! :) It feels nice with Windows 8.

The Aero+ theme isn't his, that's one of his favorites. I do agree it's a pretty good theme though.

As for 2.3, I've already commented on it before it was released. YES!


Thank you!

While I'm not a big fan of Windows 8 / Metro I really think that this is the best steam skin out there, you really created a pleasant to look at client and everything just fits perfectly. It's amazing!
Great work on the skin BoneyardBrew and keep it up! :D


Thanks! I'm glad you think that. I'll keep at it!

Well that's good at least.

Now I can stop hating him for being so damn talented :p


Heh :p

2.4 looks great.

If I might just ask, what's the difference between the "Stable" and "Beta" files?

Beta is if you're in the Steam beta for big picture mode.

In celebration of this release I made a landing page for the skin. It was done weeks ago but losing power set back my schedule. Check it out here!

Also, if you really enjoy using the skin I would appreciate it immensely if you were to donate. Any amount will do, and I could put it towards my next iced coffee! :)

Be sure that it extracts to its own directory (Windows 8 - 2.5) and then put it in the skins folder located in Steam's root directory. Once that's done go to Settings - Interface from Steam and select the skin from the drop-down menu.
