Which pictures icon do you prefer, the one with camera on it or the one without? If there are any icons you want me to change let me know.

How about this icon on the harddrive instead for the original windows logo?

Just wanted to know if you guys think it would look better if the download, music and link overlay were yellow?
Just a thought.. but have you tried them parts in a simular blue to the icons with screens on them?, Might make the collection look more 'uniformed'..
There looking good either way though IMO!

The Installer that's already wrote for the Glossy Blue's is quite easy to convert for others.

but on saying that, I have started re-writing the install to include an '.ini' file to allow others to customize the setup to their needs without worrying about the code. Soon, stuff like the title, warning notice and window colour can all be changed without the need to understand the scripts coding.

also making the installer use an actual filelist so extra files can be added to the 'System32' & 'SysWOW64' folders without the need to rewrite the whole thing.
