Always enjoyed SpewBoy's and your own work BoneyardBrew. Would definitely love to see this theme come a reality. ;)

Ah yes, sorry my mistake.

My PC monitor is a SONY 40 Inch TV, so you can imagine that there is lots of contrast and other picture-improving stuff going on. It just looked very black to me.
Anyway, totally looking forward to it!

Thanks. I hope you'll like it more once I reveal some more screenshots.

Thanks, that means a lot! It's already mostly coded, so it's definitely a reality. :)

Looks really nice. It's great to see a design that isn't too busy visually, as far too often skin makers go over the top and it just doesn't work for daily usage. The default interface leaves a lot to be desired and I'd be interested to give this a go.

Thanks for the comment. I agree with you. Minimalist designs tend to capture my interest, which is partly why I've grasped onto Metro so tightly.

Here are some screenshots of the skin in action!

Please hover over each image and click on the high resolution view icon on the top right. They look horrible resized.

Looks good. Would it work on Windows 7 as well? It should, right?

Could you also add support for the "Details" layout (if you haven't done so already)?

I had tried your MetroTwit skin but soon found out that there were no styles defined it, which is a bummer since that's the layout I'm most comfortable with.

Yup, it'll work on Windows 7 perfectly.

I made sure I skinned the Details view this time. You have nothing to worry about. :)

Not really interested in skinning my Steam, since I don't use it much. However, this does look pretty nice, which is no surprise coming from Boneyard. Keep up the top notch work! (Y)

Oh and is "Windows 8" the definite name of this skin?
Or are you going for a "Metro Steam"-ish (-ish because it's already taken by an inferior skin ;)) name?

Also, too bad it's not possible (that I know of anyway) to use a custom CSS file on the steam pages, that gradient on the webpages is ruining this awesome theme a bit)

I was thinking of keeping it Windows 8 just so it's easily recognizable. Besides, I'm horrible with names. :p

I know what you mean. It would be nice if I could just change the background color to match the theme, that's really all it needs.
