You can find it at ResExcellence.com or here.

Maybe the metal window texture will make it slightly more appealing (you won't yet see that if you apply this theme with ShapeShifter) than previous versions. No apologies, mind you, but this thing was originally built mainly to rescue me from those Aqua elements with high luminosity!

I think ShapeShifter is great and all, but anyone agree with me that it would be nice to switch between the most popular themes for free?

While I do agree that it would be nice to switch themes for free, I don't think it is our right, as it were, to switch themes for free.

Seeing as Apple has provided no way for the average user to apply his/her own theme I see the application of themes as a privilege. As such, I am willing to pay for an application/framework that allows us to apply said themes.

If themers such as yourself are willing to confine yourselves to the constraints of what is and is not possible using the .dlta, or similar, format to allow the free switching of themes, I applaud you. At the same time if other themers elect to adopt the guiKit standard, I see no problem with that.

Happy Holidays

Not a theme I could use everyday, but nice still.

The attitude of some people here toward some of the themers is really starting to disgust me, these people donate their time and effort to give us a different skin for our os, the least you can do is have a little respect and refrain from making mindless attacks, the beauty of a theme is quite subjective and depends on the person who is using it, so please if you are not gonna make a constructive critic just go outside and take a breath of fresh air and calm yourself down and stop making a bad name for the rest of the users here.

Meh, just ignore him. He is obviously a post whore, trying to up his post count by contributing "witty" comments and such.

Although I now find myself wondering what was so humorous about my first post.

enlighten us oh benign, nay malignant, one…

thanks for all the effort llee! im a little "darker" than this theme, but im sure that your contribution to the theme world will find a home on someones computer. thanks!

BENIGN, you are anything but. get over your aesthetic elitism, and shut the f*ck up while youre at it. themers bust their asses for things you download for free. same goes for commentary in the screenshot thread. chill out man. constructive criticism, not your sorry excuse for replies. play nice.

At least I am not a sycophantic whore.

I give a little, I take a little that's
the glory of, thats the story of love...

In this open forum - I tell you what I think.
And I even had the manners not to trash
your efforts but to use a little bit of
'internet-wit' - if that in itself is not an
oxymoron.

Guys with girly themes and attitudes to match
who are afraid of rejection or adverse
comments should not post in an open forum.

Riiiiight.

And just whose ass am I trying to kiss exactly? I never said, "Awesome theme, bro! Can't wait to apply it!" Nor did I say that I had even ponied up for ShapeShifter. Assumptions. You're going to have to spell this one out for me apparently…

You're not denying that you're a post whore though, eh? There may be hope for you yet.

I have no efforts to trash. I am not a themer. You're "wit" was misdirected.

And just how, exactly, is saying, "Worse[sic] theme ever…" not trashing this themer's efforts?

I think most here would agree that constructive criticism is a good thing. Belittling people to make yourself feel somehow superior is quite another…

Good day,sir.

I think it looks uhhhhh… well not good or at least not for me. I guess it's just not my style. I'm sure some people will use it but I think it lacks sophistication. But then again I think Milk and GUIpod and nice so YMMV.



May I also add I have no idea how to make a theme, want to try, so your theme is waaaay ahead of mine.
