NewStyle by somnign NewStyle by somnign
NewStyle visual style for windows xp
the icons in this shot are from the retrofukation suite [link]
i've used them for some time and they never get old. thanks! =D

styler: [link]
shutoff: [link]

this skin has no power options on the start panel as you can see. an attempt to derive a level of aesthetic pleasure.. xD please download shutoff [link] and the skin for it.
alternatively you can use task manager to shutdown.
(right click the taskbar, point to 'task manager';)

this is open source so feel free to mod and release at your discretion. a reference or shout out would be nice (=

brilliant! This reminds me of a quiet and peaceful foggy morning in a country side. The color and style are perfect. I personally like this more than Ivi.

I really like the subtle shading in the titlebar and the startmenu (personally not seen that before). No logoff button is a plus.

To increase spacious feeling, I would mod to use fadebar for transparent taskbar + opaque taskbar buttons. And I would use the same purple color as the background for that little light in shutoff hover buttons. Now that is what I will use daily.

thanks a lot, i put a lot of work into it.
and this time i used it for a couple weeks to test bugs myself. having comments littered with complaints isn't cool xD

honestly haven't used fadebar yet. i prefer a regular taskbar with no transparency, but i will give it a try and see what i come up with =)

oh, it was just a personal preference/taste and I said so. I think the style is outstanding. Didn't mean a complaint or request :) I am also a programmer so I love feedback and I update my work. Maybe not a popular way for art work :D

no, i understand, thanks for the comment/advice
i figure the more i know the better, and a lot of people would probably like if i added a fadebar so why not? =D

AHA! I know a great minimal VS when I see it. This is "Ivi" in white instead of black. This is nice,but my mood is for the black Ivi for now....I'll save this one for later! Nice one again man..thanx:)

wow looks awesome.. except for the buttons... and the font looks too small for my eyes (i can see the different colors from cleartype, wich ruins them)...
still like it.. especially the start menu its really cool.. with the darker part and navigation menu
