Windows 7: windows 7 visual styles


08 Aug 2009   #11

Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit (Build 7600)
 
 

I don't know if anybody agrees with me here but most of these styles are a slight modification of the default Aero theme. I have only found one actual independent theme that wasn't a port and it really didn't look that great.

I do understand its a learning process and some artists are gonna have to be a little innovative in order to push the customization factor a little higher. I miss my Vista VS's... I had a really nice gray one that I got from dA. I forgot what it was called.

Hope more independent VS's come out.. What are you guys using?

Also, t41, whats the replacement for the *****'s on your link?

have you ever tried to make a VS from scratch? it takes weeks of work. months even. it's not a quick process.

a lot of people don't even know that windows 7 exists. give it some time...

Yeah I know, I used to make XP skins for Windows Blinds. It does take time, I'm not really complaining about it, just eager to get something new, you know.. A lot of people in dA are working hard and trying new **** everyday

i think the main issue is that windows 7 isn't retail yet, and most people out there don't even know it exists. with Vista Style Builder you can port Vista styles to Windows 7 quite easily - it comes out 90% complete, and you just have to tweak some margins and skin a few new UI elements. it'll happen, it just needs time.

I'm using the "Elegant Gray" theme or vs myself and love it.

If this is not what you are talking about then i apologize, i think i know what thread you are referring to, if you find it please post a link here as well.

Thanks, t41

Sorry it took so long to get back to you, I've been down and out. Any way the theme I am using is called "elegant gray" found on deviant art. I am also using cdart display right herewith the Abandon Otis (ThaUpright) skin found on deviant art as well. Using rainmeter as well for clock and weather. All else just gadgets I picked up along the way.
I have uploaded the wallpaper for you as i don't remember where or when i got it.
