Are there uxtheme patches available? Not uxstyle core, but actual dll's that can be replaced like for XP/Vista? Thanks!

I dislike every single one of those skins.

Someone please hand me the style builder! XD

Yeah I didn't like most themes for Vista either -- the one I did like was called Transblack but doesn't have a Windows 7 equivalent yet. Instead for Windows 7 I just settled for Ribbon VS which is a slight improvement over the default Windows 7 theme. But since everyone has different tastes, that's why I compiled the list in the first place.

Well I think the port of Luna Royal is great, but it's a basic theme and I would miss the new "aero peek" feature.

Otherwise Ribbon VS is my favorite Visual Style.

Currently I'm also using windowblinds 7 (beta available through object desktop subscription), and the result is decent.

yeah Transblack was a very nice theme. I used it for the longest time on Vista.

Bit weird regarding NEXTlevel. I can install the theme just fine, but I can't get the start orb to change to the one in the screenshot. I took ownership of Explorer, I downloaded the x64 Explorer from the same page and replaced the original with it, but still no luck. Weird.

did you close the explorer.exe process and reopen it?

Yeah, but I found the cause of the problem. I opened the supposed patched explorer.exe in Restorator 2007, and only one of the BMP's were updated with the newer logo, when 3 of them needed to be updated.

Great list! Why do I find it funny that us 7 fans are coming up with different looks for an OS that isn't even released yet? Alas, we geeks are never satisfied.

Ugh, these recolors are making my eyes hurt.

I would be nice to have some really visually striking themes.

Verdesh Steelflash on Russian x64 has a graphical glitch. It has a washed out effect on the start menu.

It's a gloss/shine effect. Meant to be there.
