Windows 7: Classic theme that replace 7 Basic Theme?

Classic theme that replace 7 Basic Theme?

Hey there guys.

I wonder if there's a theme that could change Windows 7's basic theme for something... more beautiful?

I know for a fact that it can be changed because, in Vista, right now, I'm using an advanced theme (using Tune Up Utilities 2k9) that has changed the basic theme for something a little more beautiful.

I don't know if there is a theme for Windows 7 that would change it to a classic theme like Luna (WinXP) or, better, Royale while keeping the Aero Theme intact?

Or maybe someone could make this?

Anyway, anything that looks like that?

uxtheme thread

There's some starting information on patching uxtheme at this thread:

Uxtheme patch for windows 7 build 7100

and a few themes up at deviant art, for vista basic but they *might work*. I haven't had any luck, all these patches seem to be for build 7100, which is, alas, not what I'm running. If you do get something going, please post back to this thread so I can see what has worked for others.

Basic vs Classic theme...does it affect battery life?
I have a dell studio xps 13. I absolutely love the performance that comes with it, but it tends to sacrifice in the battery life area to meet those high marks. I use the laptop primary for school and travel, and use my high powered custom built desktop for everything else. We all know that Aero...
