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.

By the way nice taskbar and you have keep that start menu, hard to go pass, it is one of the better ones going around.

Yes you are right, they are different stages, just like a startbutton.

Here you go then, I have Renamed it as it only has elements of the old one and not a full conversion.
