I can’t stress enough that this is his artwork, he very kindly releases it all under an OS license and I just did the port to Vista and Win 7.
Personally I did this out of necessity, I hate the default Aero theme that comes with Vista and Windows 7. I love all the Aero effects (glass and the likes) but as a UI it’s lacks subtlety and minimalism. So I decided to port some themes I really liked.
All these are to be found on my DeviantArt page.
A new Windows 7 today. This is a bit of a departure for me as it’s very ‘Aero Glass’. I aimed at it being minimalist so it uses small fonts and UI elements more reminiscent of the Windows Classic look than Aero.
The artwork for the controls is from lassekongo83’s NOSP VS, a style way more deserving of admiration than it’s name suggests.
The most recent one is a theme I’ve called Slate for Windows 7. It is more original than the other two I’ve made for Vista as it includes more of my own artwork. It is still primarily the work of lassekongo83.
CleanGlass & Auriel 2
These two themes are for Vista, I haven’t yet updated them to Windows 7 but do hope to in the future.
