Latoyce RC1.b by ~X3remes on deviantART

I had a bit of a go at porting this theme to Windows 7, some things were not so easy but this is how it looks so far, so tell me what you think, if you want me to make another start menu I can do that as well but I didn't get that far yet.

Also some things were not possible to do so I have improvised in a few places.
