Skins looking good in Vista

Post by cdysthe » Thu Jan 03, 2008 10:30 am

Hi,

I would really like to see a couple of skins which looks good in Windows Vista. I am not able to find any which looks good in compact mode in Vista. They are all too bright. I am not able to code skins myself, but hope we will see some skins aimed more at Vista users than the current ones available. Don't get me wrong, most of the skins available are really good, but they do not look very good on a typical Vista desktop in my opinion.

Wow! This is exactly what I am looking for. Looks really good! I wish I could provide you with the missing icons, but I have no idea where to get them from. And with the simple Avant UI it's important that the icons looks good. Do you have any idea when you may be able to complete it?
