christ man... it's like... i was looking for windows blinds skins, and your Galaxy caught my eye, i set it aside for later review. but then, when i was looking through the other skins also in the popular tab, none of them seemed able to compare with your Galaxy... then i found this one. Lo and behold, this one is also by you! hehe, crazy talent ya got there bro.

WOW...I'm honored and floored. Thank you so much for the kind comments and constructive remarks!!

As far as a visual style being available...no it is not. Although I wouldn't be against someone wanting to port it over.

As far as essential navigational graphics being removed, you're right, it was for design. I simply got tired of looking at the same old back arrow and a little picture of a house for "home" when it says it right underneith the image. Thought it would be nice to go in a different direction.

The loss of performance due to the transparency is almost non-existant with most computers. Older machines and machines that have onboard graphics will experience performance issues.

Windowblinds is a product made by Stardock and can be found here [link]. The software is well worth the 20 dollars.

The icon package you see is called the_last_order_candy by Rokey. Kudos for making an awesome icon package!!

It's support like this that makes all of the long nights in front of the computer well worth it. Thank you all so much for your support. It truely is greatly appreciated!!!

There is a major update coming for this skin so be sure to check back in the next few weeks for the update.

Peace to all,
Scion2412

To all the people who are saying negative things about this piece- Shut up. You aren't being constructive, you are not the gallery manager so you don't have the authority to make the calls you are making, and you are just being unkind. Something along the lines of "Not the best I've ever seen, but getting there" is VERY DIFFERENT from "This isn't worth a DD. It's very poor." Voicing your opinion is all well and dandy, but remeber to speak the truth in mercy and kindness.

Comments on the piece- I really like it. The blue bars on the sides of the windows are purely genius, and I very much agree that this should be a built-in skin for XP. Keep up the good work. I would use this theme if my computer could pull off a third party theme utility...

i think it's perfect. properly made, and very simple. this should be included in the original windows xp package and people wouldn't have to download windowblinds anymore. ^_^ it's just my type.

Not something I would use. The design is seen SO many times before, and all the effects only make it all go waaay slow.

Not worthy of a DD if you ask me.

i doubt the practicality of replacing all of the standard icons with that bevelled button... why remove essential navigational and functional graphics for the sake of minimalism?... this skin would decrease performance, with the use of transparent effects, and unoptimised pseudo-3d panels...

I like to see interface design featured in the DDs, but this is a really poor example.

Gorgeous programming. This is the kind of stuff that deserves more spots on the DDs.

Very nice... Not convinced about a couple of the mouse over effexts; the menu highlight (on 'Arrange Icons By' ni the picture) looks out of place and doesn't seem to fit in with the skin as a whole. Also the menu bar mouseover i think would look better with out the border and possibly without the bevel (i think just the glow would be more subtle and fit in more with the rest of the skin).

Overall a very nice skin... Just a shame i don't have WB 5...

From the screenshot, the only thing that I don't like too much is the taskbar, it's not thin enough for my tastes ;). But overall, it's a great skin, congrats :clap:
