Not bad, you will have many many people modding it to flat black and soon it will be on many many screenshots.

Welcome to Custo! Nice enough for a first submission, but it's not very original and still a bit rough around the edges . The start menu only looks half finished for example. A reasonable start, but i'm sure you can do better.

nothing new under the sun, but that white border is a twist, but still i think it is a clinical+untitled remix.

It's a nice looking visual style. However, there are some things that are wrong/incomplete. The start menu, for example, ends abruptly (the lower right-hand corner is kind of gone). Also, the main caption font needs a little realigning, seeing as it is a little lower than it should be. Nevertheless, awesome first submission. I'm looking forward to the next version and your other submits as well.

yeah the start menu is pretty messed up...and the caption bar could be thinner or the text aligned, i agree with nghiem

Wow, that's so homo. I had the exact same start button for a LS theme I was working on. I mean EXACT same.

this skin is way better than area04, which has numerous problems.

Only thing I don't like is the white window border - change that to black and I'm floored.

In fact - I'll probably do it.

very love it...

This would look amazing with the gradient colorbar, instead of solid "spirit". Also, finally a VS that finally SHOWS the window controls. It's my biggest pet peeve when they hide those. Btw I love the minimal scroll bar :)

this could only be improved with a thin black border around the edge of windows; they get lost in all that white when you tile them...
