You got the beginnings of something really nice, but it's still not finished. I know it's hard work but you have a good start.
It'd be great to have menu's and backgrounds and animations match the theme.

very intresting concept though maybe some tweaking is needed

glow when pointing att start button maybe just me byt feels a bit wide maybe lessen it some.
skinning of menu is that something you are thinking on ?

i agree with mr urgo. this is on the way to being a great skin but it feels unfinished, for example the menubutton highlight could have rounded corners, the taskbar glow could be smoother,in ur screenshot you can even see how you havent skinned the cancel button on the shutdown dialogue etc.
i just love the blue though, and the way u can change the colour.

The wall is from the desktopX theme Jigsaw by Gef I edited it in photoshop (mirrored the image streched it and overlayed) I will need to ask for permission to distribute as its not all my own work and as you can see my desktop is 1280x800 so I'll Probabley have to remake the image in more universal size. I will be updating this blind to fix some issues and improve the graphics so I will try to get Gef's permission to include the wall in the update.

Looks good. Can you tell me how to make the fonts to retain bold characters?
(Every time I reboot they turn plain again).
Thanks

JoneP:
Nice skin, with fine neon touches. To get the other neon colors that are shown in your example, do I have to use SkinStudio or is there another way that I'm just not seeing. I went through all the config menus in WB itself, and I can't seem to find it. Thanks.

You've gone the extra mile on this one and put yourself in a whole new category for excellence in innovation and design. For what it's worth. . . I'm impressed! May I suggest that you add a matching set of Toolbar icons for the "Explorer windows" like those you have for the "Internet windows"?
