This is a rather pleasing skin. Seems well assembled and easy on the eyes.
Love the Shell Style images and especially the Control Panel look.
Only one issue that I see. The mouse over image of All Programs hangs off the left side of the start menu.

Overall, a good job.

The problem Phoon pointed out for All Programs is the transparency in it you are trying to use. It is just showing nothing not matching the edge as you intended. There is not a effect setting for per pixel alpha for all programs arrow. I colored the left end of third image same as the others 2, fixed it up. If you really look you can see it is not transparent but most would never notice.
Personal taste not keen on blue text but can easily fix.

Well done, it is a keeper.

There's something about the original skins, they always seem right for some reason. I have already found my love, 'Encoded'. This one i must use as well. You have great talent and I will enjoy using this one with passion. Thanks for sharing this babe.

This is a very well constucted skin. The only flaw I see in it is more likely a progam flaw rather than a build flaw. when I access the start menu with a fullscreen window behind it, the transparancy shows the desktop not the window behind the start menu.

hmm. that is weird. i never experience that problem before. maybe the admin has the answer. but then again. thanks a lot.

can i know where to get such a lovely wallpaper??

Exceptional work ... -1 for missing toolbar buttons.

I think you must ask Ian Black aka VoodooFreek (VF) for permiting you to use his Longhorn Slate's Toolbar Icons ...

hmm.. i better think of that one. got to admit making the progress animations is a real pain, i decided not to make a toolbar...

I have been wrong!!! the Wallpaper which i used for the skin's screenshot is not called Grassy (Comment #18). it is called New Bliss which comes with the Official Win XP Visual Style called Royale released by Microsoft itself. how could i be so stupid. the link was to a wallpaper of the same style but was sort of modified. Sorry folks. i am only human.

This is a good skin!
I believe that, with the next job, can improve a lot!
The points in object (according to my point of view):
- The buttons of closing.
- The white blue? > (better the grey transparency).
- The green bar of the downloads? > (better blue as the start).
The rest is perfect!
