comment: don't like the JAP and I agree with Opio plus makes it confusing for some ppl. also some scroll bars are all white making it hard to scroll up and down. for example when chaging wallpapers that scroll bar is all white. whats up with that? if this gets fixed i'll be using it till all the brightness gets on my nervous.

I have some Japanese friends and they consider the word "JAP" as derogatory/racist. So that's the only thing I would change. Other then that it's a quality, beautiful theme. :p

it is a racist term, rename it to "JPN" a lot more appropriate.

anyway, the colour is beautiful.. except.. since when do the Japanese use the colour brown? they use a lot red.. and white :p

Nice work, though I find myself judging it differently given the name. As others have stated, "JAP" is a less than ideal combination to use for the caption buttons. The compact start panel could use some reworking as it's not much use without a way to access programs. Not sure if they are supposed to be this way, but the scrollbars are way too think to be usable.

Visually, it's stunning. The browns work well and are somewhat typical of Japan in terms of earth colors; however, color is an important aspect of design in Japan and as such I'd expect to see some deep reds or green/blues here and there.

rediculously awesome. never thought of letters as min/max/close buttons...

start menu is extra compact, but thats ok. i'd prefer to have the left side rather than the right, but thats ok.

oh, no, i love the jap. totally original. i love the compact too. always better to be compact. i was saying that most compact pick the left half of the start menu to keep, and the right half to hide. and you did it the other way around. is that an option that i missed?

I don't think you understand. Alternative version or not, using a word with that association is nothing short of offensive.

huh?? whats offensive about what he did?

To most, the word "Jap" is just as offensive as the word "Jew" ... or even "<< racial epithet >>" to describe people from Latin-America and "<< racial epithet >>" to describe African Americans.

Did you never learn about WWII in high school? :blink::

Heck, I'm not even Japanese and the word offended me, just as any other racist word should offend someone. You might not be offended by it and that's fine, but it does offend others.

EDIT: I suggest you read this article - http://modelminority.com/printout292.html

If you people find it so offensive stop whining and don't use the theme, it's as simple as that.

Who's whining?

For myself, I've said what needs to be said so let's try and get back on topic here.

It's not that we find it offense, but the fact that other people who see this theme will find it offensive. Also it's not good for Neowin if people promote the use of racist terms in their XP styles, ne?

And yes, we know he's truly not promoting the racist terms, but it may seem that way for some people.

On-topic: I love the colours of this theme. It's sleek and easy on the eys. Nice job! :up:

It?s a really great theme but I?ve got one serious problem with it. While using it Outlook 2003 switches to lowres 16 color icons, which are really ugly.

This is the first vs I?ve seen that does this
