lol @ the "Vista Ready" icons! I knew there had to be a reason you'd post msstyles on your page.

Any serious discussion of skinning has to include msstyles.

Not all WB skins work on Vista.

And not everybody wants to use 3rd party sofware to "enable" being able to use themes.

Nice list.

KoL, thank you for making your amazing themes/wallpapers. Please keep up the good work amigo :)

Thanks for creating such brilliant skins. I wish I could have shown the other sub-styles in your skin. They're all terrific.

I just noticed huge incoming traffic from Wincustomize to my site, and when I checked the source, WHOA! I was pleased or what :D

Thanks for mentioning Tener VS, it's things like this that motivate me to keep making skins.

And while we are on the topic, a minimalistic black msstyle is on the way, so keep your fingers crossed :p
