- full & compact solid (opaque) start panel

Many improvements over v2.0 including updated windowframes and titlebar buttons, added glow button effects, added action buttons with overlay images with text description (transparent window button, rollup/unroll window, windowblinds page shortcut & windows media player), improved startpanel/moreprog area bkgrnd & item elements, skinned flat menus, updated taskbar/taskbar buttons/group menu bkgrnd, disabled userpane pic area & removed included wallpaper image, added off2k7 style scrollbar thumb & arrow buttons, updated control panel elements, updated ie7/vista style internet explorer toolbar icons, etc. Overall, a 100% improvement over the previous version of this skin.
Author: vStyler Author’s Notes: It is strictly for Windows XP.. it has NOT been tested on Vista and is not for Vista. The walls used in screenshot are from Vista and I cannot include them. I do recommend that you use a high contrast wall with this theme as it will make the most of the transparency in the theme. There WILL be a seperate Vista version released in a few days. On my site I intend to have seperate XP and Vista sections.
This will be my last free release for a while. I have two Premium Suites in the works that will be VERY complete so please feel free to stop by my site www.maxstyles.com to check for progress updates on those and also for other maxstyles exclusive content. if you get a chance , register too , only takes a sec and I would definately appreciate it.
I would like to thank all involved in the extensive testing of the Vienna WB (you know who you are), as usual, couldn’t have done it without you guys.
Included are Per pixel Frames, Animations, Toolbar buttons, Shutdown Dialogs etc etc,, the whole 9 yards.
There will be an AWESOME Vienna CursorXP set released shortly by the incredible Cursor skinner “Aroche”.. loko for it in the cursor section…
Lastly the Icons shown are called Nicon.. I believe they are on WC , if not, you can find them at www.guicchamps.com
Hope everyone enjoys this WB as It’s one of my fav’s so far.
and dont forget to stop by maxstyles sometime and show some love
Author: 037 Author’s Notes: This is a Adobe Creative Suite 3 Icon Pack for Windows Vista.
I only made it because I got Adobe’s software, while enjoying all the great new features, felt that their icons are an invasive branding strategy that makes me feel like a NASCAR driver with a jacket full of sponsors and logo as it slaps the colored squares with alphabets all over my start menu, and at the same time, makes my Windows Vista and Object Dock look like 2000′s by introducing its 2-dimensional artwork into my 3-dimensional desktop metaphor.
Anyway, I have yet to find a better branding strategy for their 60+ products, so I wouldn’t try to make a realistic ‘object’ icon (yet) to represent the software. I don’t think making a set with some abstract symbols I invented myself wouldn’t be that useful (yet) either.
Right now, I like their box art so I decided to do a simple mashup of their periodic table icons and the product boxes. It gives a nice dimension, better texture and less legibility. Easy to make, pleasing to look at. It’s all good!
It has all sizes for Windows Vista up to 256×256. It works for Windows XP as well.
Includes: Photoshop, Photoshop Extended, Illustrator, InDesign, After Effects, Premiere, Soundbooth, Dreamweaver, Flash, Contribute, Fireworks, Bridge and Acrobat 8.
All box arts are creations by Adobe so they can take this down if they like. I’m just contributing as a hobbyist here just in case somebody feels the same about their icons… anyway, thanks for looking!
