Artist's Note

A simple minimalistic skin that is usable and customizeable.
This style comes with 2 substyles, normal and mini/compact.
To use mini/compact, please download StrokeIT [link] for mouse gestures as it is WAY too thin.
Fonts included!

****Update**** ver3 now. new substyles, thin and blue.


This vs was based on Minimal Classic by Static- it says in the description, quote
"Feel Free To Mod And Release .. Ports Are Also Allowed (With Proper Credit)"

So yeah, have fun and give feedback, tell me if i should continue and make a final version of this :)

Not bad, a bit rough in some areas that if fixed up would make this excellent.

Nice theme. Looks like you use blank icons, where might I download a hacked shell32 like that?

If there was another font such as Arial or Tahoma included, I would use this. Im not a big fan of all-caps fonts for everyday use.

That is class. The font selection needs a bit more consistency though...
