Anyone can use 'custom themes' without patching, simply choose your own cutom colors and wallpaper, then save the theme..

The whole idea of UxStyle is for custom 'Styles', which is a different matter. Themes just change the basic color, where as styles change the bits a theme just cant touch.

Here's a preview of my own Style that I'm making.. Notice there's no fade behind my clock, The corner of the window shown has white lines behind it instead of the blur effect, the close button is blue as oppossed to red etc...

It won't be long, I promise.. just got a few other projects to tie up first.
It is a bit more complete than what is shown, I started over to ensure it was a cleaner feel.

My first attempt involved more colour replacment which left shades of other colors showing through.
..Kind of a purple effect was showing around the blue button instead of what I wanted.

Hm, I've installed this, but it seems to have made no actual change I can find on the system. I looked for a process, and a service, but there's no sign of these. not sure what the trouble is. Does it work on non-Aero enabled systems? (i have the dreaded Intel 915, as fully functional as it gets)
