Here it is, Luna Element v2.0. A new version a visual style some say is the best theme ever. It is based on Luna (the Windows XP default theme) and some stuff are still in original design so I don't take credit for everything in this visual style. Hope you like it though.

* Default (standard thickness)

* Default Alt. Startbutton (standard thickness)

* Compact (thin style)

Changes in v2.51

* Added Style: Compact Royal

Changes in v2.5

* New Style: Royal Element! :D

* Sligtly modified green start button

Changes in v2.3

* Skinned vertical taskbar

* Optimized taskbar task distance vaules

* Grouped tasks alert bug fixed

* New hover image on active task

Changes in v2.1

* Updated shellstyle

* Made theme installer, 7-zip sfx, filesize now ~600kb smaller

Changes in v2.0:

* New color

* New Startmenu

* Remade all trackbars

* Remade progressbar

* Remade buttons

* Remade radiobuttons

I loved the first one, and now I love you.

Good Themes are hard to find in my humble opinion. Only 5 or 6 have only had long lasting appeal to me, and this is one of them.

OH POOP it is an 11K download and currupted? I hope this is just D-Art errors :(

Great theme..

Can you make one with a normal looking start button as well using a bit slimmer task bar?

Can someone make a screenie with cleartype disabled? It's off on my CRT and I'm wondering how it looks without it before I go through the hassle of patching uxtheme.dll, just to install this vs...

In the themes folder I can see an element.mssyles which is like 342bytes. We don't have to overwrite that right? Only the one in its folder?

You can move the file to which folder you want. Just don't remove it if you dubble click on it and press Apply.

Is there a bug w/ the progress bar? If I run something like CCleaner, the bar doesn't fill all the way up, say @ 100%. Is it just me? Also, not to beat a dead horse, but a VS this slick really should be complimented w/ a proper shellstyle in the future. I'm sure someone wouldn't mind giving it a shot. Just a thought.
