Windows 7: What ever happened to BBLean (Black Box Windows Shell?)

What ever happened to BBLean (Black Box Windows Shell?)

So I just found out about people created alternative Window shells. I found this out by finding out about Black Box or bblean. My question is, whatever happened to these nifty shells? This beats Windows Visual Themes by %100. A lot more customization.

I've been trying to figure how how to use bblean and such, but it seems it has just died out... There hasn't been a decent tutorial or article on bblean in almost 7 years. I can't find any themes for it that don't look all boring. Every theme I do find are from around 2006. And the internet looked very ugly in 06. So did every UI for everything. Does anybody know what happened to bblean?
