This is the best DX Theme ever!! Thanks so much for doing it. It meshes perfectly with the other Colony skins by Mike Bryant.

I'm having trouble finding the horizontal sysmetrix version though. Is that released yet?

Great stuff though. A perfect 10. Thanks.

Great skin, but I wish you guys would start your sizes at 1024x768.

Nah.... anything smaller than 1280x1024 is an outdated mode. Monitors are cheap, upgrade.

Some of us can't get bigger monitors due to size constraints. Others simply can't afford it.

Chad, nice looking work! I am downloading your theme as I type and hope it's as good as the preview looks. I am currently running the FauxS-X theme which I love. If your's is as good or better, I'll have to rotate you two LOL

PS you are right about larger monitors...19 inches should be the standard now.

This is truly a GREAT theme.
I don't know if anyone else is having this problem, but if I open more than 2 of anything (Browsers, file navigators, etc), they all disappear or just one is available on the taskbar. Any have any ideas of how to fix that? Also, is there any way to get tooltips to pop up on the icons in the pop out area? I'm quite new at this, and hopefully I've just overlooked that option.

Thanks!

Rob, if you would like tool tips, right click on any object you would like to see a tool tip for, and select properties. Then select Summary near the bottom left. Type in whatever tooltip you would like to see.

i need it in 1152*768

Hint: you can nearly always make it bigger but its herder to make it smaller...

You also forget the largest "affordable" LCD monitors are 17 inches. Also you fail to consider those who might have vision problems and use a smaller resolution so items appear larger on the screen. To just say "upgrade" is rather self centered and does not even in the slightest take into consideration the needs of others.

this looks like a really cool theme but I wonder why the Colony Horizonal DX Sysetrix didn't come with the theme, and where do I get it. i went to the links for the other Colony objects but I couldn't find this plugin?
