If the titlebar frame was fixed (along with the caption buttons) and the separators were changed, then this would be a very nice theme! :D

Just tried this, you really need a huge makeover for the bitmaps, thy're all resized and crapped up. i think you also made mistake in between some rollover buttons for the taskvar.
I bet you took some already made w 7 .msstyl document and modified it right xD? ( i do it too but for personal use only...)
I really wanna help with this :)

well I told him to maybe get the win7 theme and extract some resources out of it that way he can complete it a lot easier but I guess he really didn't man...he just used the example [.psd] and we all know you never use the psd completely as you need to create images yourself...but I don't know if you really want to help go ahead

get the original Xp luna .theme file open it with "notepad" then just edit the address of the resources in the themes folder....name it differently there you go. ad a wallpaper folder to the other "xx"folder link it in the .theme file. easy.=)

Geeze Vher528 your acting like this kid just slept with your wife,,Cmon if you get worked up too much you might give yourself a heart attack and if that happens I wont be able to download those top shelf styles you put out there.My mother always told me that if somebody steals your stuff it means they need it more then you...;)~

Vher - I've commented on your work. I love almost everything you've put out. I've even defended you before when that other schmuck straight stole your work. I'm sorry, but I just think you are going a little overboard with this. This is nowhere near the final and he's just using it as a jumping off point. Like if you lay a foundation then build a house on top of it then I tear down that house and build a completely different house you can't really claim the house is yours because the foundation is the same.

This guy modifying your template is exactly the same as you modifying Microsoft's template.
As I'm pretty sure you didn't ask M$ to use/alter their material, and you're adamant this gentleman stole your work ...

... is it then safe to say you stole from Microsoft?

Seriously, just let it go. If anything, you should be flattered he thought highly enough of your work to borrow it as a foundation for his own. And, judging from the preview picture, his work looks absolutely NOTHING like any of yours.

get over it, he's only using your other visual style to CHANGE all of the bitmaps - hence it will be a completely different theme at the end. He may not have asked your permission, but nobody asks Microsoft if they can use the Aero theme, so move on and stop spamming it. Just reading all of your comments made me annoyed with you. thanks :)
