personally i find that the borders are a bit wide for my taste. and i'd prefer a glowing blue over the red but overall good work. it'll be nice to see what new visual styles come out after windows 7 is released.

The dark red just doesn't seem like an appropriate color for windows seven... I don't like the desktop icon and the back/forward arrows. Try some more layer effects on them or decrease the opacity of the arrows themselves... if you still keep the .PSD which is...
Otherwise I like the idea of the big borders, kind of makes it look unusual and at the same time cool
Oh yeah, and the title DID get my attention a lot! I thought it was based on the Prototype PC Game...

Yeah might want to try the Professional blue tone. I like the back/forward buttons.

What font does Windows Explorer use? I'm trying to create some custom buttons, etc but I want it to match the rest of the explorer!

Please respond asap! =P

Version 2 is starting to go really near my taste, but I still think that Seven+Red ain't right. You might try all that on a black background so that it may look like a really cool, stylish&death sort of theme. If you do that it would rule. Still if you insist on the white background, try everything in a more... calm color, you know, something that relaxes the eyes. I like blue, like the blue in the Photoshop CS4 icon, the green is also a nice color, try lighter green like the MS Windows Orb.

Yes the red just doesnt work for windows 7. A nice glowing blue would look nice.. Otherwise it is cool.
