Windows Vista Theme/skin

Hi,

Does anybody know of a good Vista theme? I am getting bored with my XP PC (I don't have a mac ) I downloaded one theme, but it is a .wba, which I don't know how to use. If anyone knows how to use one, I would greatly appreciate it.

Aksimhal

You need to download Window Blinds for that skin. The skin is also for use on XP, not Vista.

Re: Windows Vista Theme/skin

PCLinuxOS Big Daddy 0.93 has a nice Vista-like look to it, including transparancy. It's worth messing around with if you're into the desktop linux thing.

Re: Windows Vista Theme/skin

I use the Royale, Royale Noir, and Zune themes from Microsoft on my computers. I like these because they are free, work without Windows Blinds (these are official Microsoft-released themes), and their bright colors and glassy styling are a huge improvement over the defacto Windows XP Luna theme.

If you want to get Windows Blinds, then you will have to purchase it for $19.95 from their website.
