Hey, that looks nice! I'm a big fan of black. The theme sure beats the weird text color / window color combinations in Windows 8.

Do you have any screenshots of it while in use?

Nice theme but isn't that the old explorer from Windows 7? Will this theme replace the ribbon explorer? If not, I'd like to see a screenshot with the ribbon to see how it blends with this.

I thought the same thing at first, but from DeviantArt:

Theme requires ribbon disabler:

Just wanted to let everyone know that I just released a new update. The new update fixes some problems with the taskbar :D

Transparency in windows 8?

Yes it is possible (through high contrast hack), but that's not the point of the theme. Also, the way the theme has been design, it would be hard to make it transparent.

I always wondered how do you people manage to have explorer's panel as neat as the one in your screenshot.

This might just be the first dark visual style that I like. It's a pity that I can't try it out though... would love to. Is there any chance you could make a version that works with the default Explorer (i.e. with the Ribbon)?

I would like to, but the Ribbon isn't very customizable, especially with dark themes.

Oh, alright. Well, I'll disable the Ribbon and give it a spin anyway. :) More fun than re-installing Windows which was my plan for the evening. :p

Edit: Not for me... As I said, never was a fan of dark themes. On the other hand, my lady is sold on it. ;)
