That are 3 nice looking skins. Do you plan on making them work at higher dpi settings? And the ribbon looks out of place, can't it be skinned too? I actually use it and don't want to disable it!

I would personally love to see something based on the old Watercolor theme for the XP betas

For now the skins are in their beta stages until Stylebuilder becomes more stable. So future updates to include DPI settings are possible.

As far as watercolor, that's a neat suggestion and gives me a cool idea, stay tuned.

Color customization and taskbar transparency, as another set of the themes would be wonderful :D, excellent themes anyway!

Through every themeable version of windows, I have yet to see a single dark theme that doesn't suffer from unfixable bugs with unreadable text in several situations where black text and dark background clash.

I didn't think there was much in the way of skinning within win8 but those look nice, look forward to trying them out :)

I like the look of the second one. I'll have to try it out.

I'd like to see a theme like the second one without any bugs and it would use the default windows dlls except for the ones needed to run a third party theme.

This.... I've seen some really sexy dark themes that were amazing, up until I needed a system window (that was unchangeable through the normal font controls) and it would have black on black :(

MS's removal of the font controls is going to make this tougher to correct another themer's issues.

Nite Smooth is good one. (Y)
It would've been awesome if the style of navigation buttons of explorer remained the same.
Great one nontheless

Hi neiio,

Thank you for these great themes, I am enjoying them all! I do have one request:

I like the Nite Smooth theme the best, but I prefer the way the Work theme's Explorer drive space bar looks. Kind of a transparent blue that lets the background show through. Can you implement this same effect in the Nite Smooth theme? I think this change would send the Nite Smooth theme over the top!

neiio,

I just saw your iBaked theme over on Deviantart, and I must say it is SWEET! Will you be porting it over to Windows 8?
