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).
Inspiration for this theme came from Windows Whister, Windows Blackcomb Previews, Sosumi, Apple OSX and, of course, Luna.
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.
To install simply run the executable.
The visual style can be uninstalled through Add/Remove Programs.
