Metallic Shades 2.11 by themenorth Metallic Shades 2.11 by themenorth
A smooth metallic visual style with a choice of four colours (blue, green, purple, red), three font sizes (normal, large, extra large) and four modes (standard, no user picture, compact, extra compact).

Notes

Inspiration for this theme came from Windows Whister, Windows Blackcomb Previews, Sosumi, Apple OSX and, of course, Luna.

Credits

Credit goes to Darkone for the creation of the ThemeXP visual style upon which the start panel is based and also to Matthew McClintock and KoL for the BeOS icons used in the shellstyle.

For full details please see the readme.

Installation/Uninstallation

To install simply run the executable.

The visual style can be uninstalled through Add/Remove Programs.

I've always liked Metallic Shades. I'd used it a few years ago and I stopped using it because of issues with the software I was using at the time. Now I find it again here and it's still very nice. I like the very simple themes. I don't want dragons or black borders or crazy colors or transparencies. I'm using Windows XP, not Vista, not a Mac. This theme just fits the rest of the system.

Great job.
