The fact is you only have a skin.
Why don't check out crystalxp.net and download a complete brickopak.
And change even the color of your folders the way you want.
Or get a complete Windows 7 look.And dockbar as well.

You name it!

For the fact day tried a 3 star.

This will excellent and refreshing for you Desktop! It will bring WOW comments from friends and family because it look very professional. Although you will have to readjust your desktop sounds, and mouse pointers if you use you own; but Zune Theme is worth the changes! Try it!

Finally, someone at Microsoft is earning their keep and making cool stuff rather than churning out the same old junk.

This theme is so much nicer than the standard Windows themes that came with XP. Installed without a hitch. Matches my Aquatint Firefox theme perfectly..

Update:
This theme is growing on me.

A lot of applications are starting to change their colours with more blacks (Lightroom, ACDSee etc) and that blends nicely with this.

Another plus is the icons tend to stand out nicely against the black. The Task Bar looks great.

Orange. If I could change this to green I would. Not a huge deal though.

There are "conversion" packs and themes requiring programs to install but there are risks with those. There's no risk with this theme. It's as safe as any default theme.

The "Royale" theme is easily Googled if you have XP or XP Pro and is superior to the XP Theme. It's the same theme as MCE 2005 which is much nicer on the eyes than the ugly bright blue XP theme.

Office 2007:
Leave on the default blue. Silver and Black suck.

Quite a nice theme once you get rid of the desktop. Have discovered it has upset some of the icons in my menu-bar i.e. they disappeared and it has been quite a job to get them back and keep them back!!!!! My original rating was 4 but that has now decreased to 2.

It's sooooooooo pretty!!!!!!!!! :D :D :D :D :D :D

Actually, this is the first time I've ever felt comfortable enabling the Themes service. The first thing I usually do is disable it and switch to classic view.

This, however, is simply gorgeous... the orange is MUCH better than the in-your-face green one, but I wonder... by installing this I may not have the glass transparency of Vista, but I do get the shiny black... what is there left to Vista? *grin*

Hmm, I guess you either like green or you like orange, lol... the theme is like Vista gone Halloween, so if you don't like Black and Orange, then you should probably avoid it.
