Um, ev0|, I use Dreamweaver MX and Windowblinds, and I don't notice any problem... In fact, if using a UIS1 skin, then Windowblinds can skin much MORE than msstyles. Granted most of the best skins (IMO) are UIS2, still... it skins everything msstyles do.

I'm really looking forward to this. Good job guys. I almost gave up on PPAB in Windowblinds.

this does look damn cool, but can't someone just make a patch for xp to support transparency??

Will Windowblinds 5 allow transparency in the toolbars, menu's, dropdown, and comboboxes as well? If so I'll be happy cause my new skin needs all of that. Well except toolbars.

Now THIS is something that will bring many many people to WB and, if the styles are done right, I will be one of them. I've bitched and bitched about Stardock, but I'm more than willing to admit when they do something right and this is something very right. Even away from the longhorn styles, the overall graphics quality of any themes will jump tremendously with this.

You're taking the words out of my mouth, WB is back. :p

I will wait and see how much memory it eats. If they fixed it then i may switch, but right now the Uxtheme.dll is fine. Does all i need it to do and uses no extra resources! I wish someone could write a patch that would allow the alpha blening etc.

Ehh.

I noticed the PC was a bit slower with windows blinds, but I do really want to see how this eats cycles...

Then again Aero Glass sucks down cycles by itself.

Windowblinds does not handle the colors of the internal bars correctly.

It's not just that. This will also mean alpha blended edges on nonsquared themes. VS's like LunaElement have rough top corners because of the curve. Alpha Blending corrects that.

Nice. I have to say, WB5 looks like it's going to have the features that will make me want to switch over, especially if the importing of MSStyle files can be perfected. It's still pretty hit-or-miss, right?
