Wow... I haven't downloaded this yet, but if it works out like the preview, this is a really great skin.  I'm just afraid that it will fall flat when applied like so many similar ultra-dark minimalistic skins do.  The screen shots can be manipulated to look perfect, but it's a different story once it's applied.  I'll check it out and get back to ya before I rate this one...

Well I've tried it out, and have to say, it's pretty sweet.  Small allignment issue with the start button, and I don't like how it makes the default background color of excel black, but other than that it's really nice.  Very slick and simple.

Beautiful work! I would only suggest changing the wall for you screenshot to showcase it a little clearer.

This skin is definately worth the download. The mouseover color for the text is striking.

Excellent job!

Dark skins will always have some issues regarding text and readability and will never be for everyone to use. with that said, this is almost as good as it gets!

Yeah, the start button needs to be re-aligned, but other than that it's pretty sweet.  No issues with reading the text, either.   Good job and thank you.

Thanks everyone for kind words and opinions. I don't know what's wrong with the start button. Everything works and looks fine on my computer.

It's quite nice, but the treeview in Explorer is still bright white. I guess that's maybe a general limitation and not this skin's fault. Like the guy above, I tried opening a spreadsheet in Excel and got black text on a black background. Oh dear.

The Start button is indented for me too.

I wanted to like this skin, but it just doesn't quite do it for me. Perhaps with some colours tweaked, it could be really good. As it is, it's just not practical for my every day use. Good work otherwise.

Note: This is in Windows 7

Am I the only one having an issue with this skin?  I love dark skins and this I thought was just perfect...unfortunately the windows frames have black and white squares.   I am using 7ultimate with the paid version of WB 7

I loved the original, this is a great update that fixes a lot of the problems. As some have mentioned, the black on black is still a problem sometimes. The gray text can be hard to read. I wish WB would let me tweak font color. Also, I miss the corners and vertical sides.

All that said, this skin is straight baller! If the above problems were fixed, this would be the only skin I used.
