Can't be done....the metal window bevels that need to show the "black" band can't be that large. You can use this theme in the mean time.

Pay no attention to that, it can't be done.

Blackdog's bark is worse than his bite - he has a track record for starting impossible themes.

I think something like it should be possible. Give it a go blackdog!

PS Please don't discourage people from making/trying themes. All you'll end up doing is making another themer quit.

I normally wouldn't, but for this guy I'm making an exception.

looks like a cheap port of the cathode project to me, it's pity that stuff like this gets out before the original stuff imo.

Does that mean that Cathode is a cheap port of Longhorn Inspirat?

um well I wouldn't say cheap, because to be quite honest I prefer what's happening in cathode, but it does mean that cathode more then likely got some ideas from inspirat. How would I know though, it's not my theme

Hmmm, they are both black....

Yes, I'd say grounds for a copyright infringement case.

It's ugly. Can never figure out why people want OSX to look like Windows.

I think it is mostly because of the MUJPOR movement

(Mac Users Joint to Piss Off Randman)

I say lets sue their asses back to the hole they crawled out from!

More confusion and sympathy for these apologists rather than pissed off.
