Someone recommend a dark theme?

I'd like a simple modification of Aero Glass that's black or dark blue. I don't care much for significantly changed taskbars or icon sets or any of the sort. I'd just like a developed dark theme because I find that they're easier on my eyes, which is good since I have poor vision. Right now my desktop looks like this:

Hubble telescope images. A lot of them!!!!

The super high resolution available on some photos will need resized smaller. They warn you which ones might effect memory usage. I'd take the smaller of the high res and resize for your screen if the standard sized are to small.

This pic is 1.53MB a perfect size. Click this pic and click the window that opens then click the second window that opens.

I liked that one so much I'm using it myself.

That's actually a really neat collection of wallpapers. I've always been big on astronomy. I'm looking more for complete visual styles, though.

I'm not sure how but I read somewhere in the Win 7 you can make Aero slide show?

Anyway you could use several diffent photos that way.

Just a suggestion.

Hope you find something.

Cool, although when I think of gaseous anomalies, I usually think of politics.

Yeah, it can slideshow. I'm talking more of things like window borders and styles.

Hey, have a look at NewGen by sergiogarcia9. It's one of my favourite dark themes, or just browse on Deviantart or here on the forums.
