Simple, nice, functional and I really didn't notice the absences of the shellstyle... Keep the good work :D
tooleh Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2007
Really nice, I've always respected the functionality of your themes. This black glass version is really nice looking, too.
kakemann Featured By Owner Dec 22, 2006
The black in this one and the blue in System 3 are my most used visual styles of all time.
They should have come in one single VS together :P :D
reversial Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2006
I've been using System5 for months, but I'm switching back to s4, just because i like the black skin :).

Event-Horizon Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2005
I have tried 50 or so windows themes. I hated nearly all of them. I have to say, this one is the best theme I have ever used. I try going to something thats more complex, but I love the simplicity of this theme, but it's not to simple. Everything slows perfectly. Thanks for making my most favorite of themes ever.

=[ and im stuck using Windows 98, yet i really want this, any chance of an objectbar theme like this?
jaymoon85 Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2005
Very nice theme... It's tough for me to stick with just one color too... they all look great! :)

And if you're intrested, I'd be willing to host this theme as well as some of your others for ya... Contact me through my site, if you want. ;)

Is this posted anywhere else andy ? the download seems to be broken.
andymorum Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2005   Interface Designer
Sorry Chaos, I don't have any where to host it...

The download seems to be working for me at the moment, hopefully it was just a temporary devart glitch ;)
ChaosBlade- Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2005
Seems so, it works now. was down for nearly a day.. Thanks anyway ;)
buntyraj1 Featured By Owner May 31, 2005
I'm still seraching, but I have yet to find a visual style, that looks better and is as simple and functional as this one.
demonix69 Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2005
excellent theme. one of my favourites. I would love an optional start button that just says 'start' rather than the windows flag. Other than that, flawless.
Mystilleef Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2005
Sorry for the n00b question, but how do I install this theme?
andymorum Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2005   Interface Designer
Start up in safe mode (press f8 during startup) then install patcher from here (it's free):


Then simply double click the system.msstyles file, and press ok to apply the theme.

Mystilleef Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2005
Thanks pal, that worked! :-)
Miff Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2005
This is awesome. Simple but effective and somehow appealingly elegant. I've been using it for 2 days now and haven't found any bugs.

I've just started learning how to make winamp skins and I want to make a skin to match this style... once I know how :P

I'm going to make an MSN skin aswell. Haha, I'm crazy about skinning now.

Good work, keep it up :)
andymorum Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2005   Interface Designer
Thanks! :D
Uniform Featured By Owner Dec 31, 2004
I have applied the skin and whenever I restart my computer the skin resets to the skin I was using before I applied your skin.
andymorum Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2005   Interface Designer
Sorry I've never heard of that problem before! Only thing I can think to do is make sure it is in the folder on your disk as your other themes (C:/windows/resources/themes I'd guess).
buntyraj1 Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2004
I've been using System 2 all this time, not knowing you made new ones, I'll just have to DevWatch you. I swear by your system styles, they are awesome.
andymorum Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2004   Interface Designer
Thanks, you've just inspired me to start System 5 (hopefully for gnome/metacity and windows xp)

GrudgeArt Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2004
Hello, I use the Neowin StyleXP thingy, and I can't select which one I want, so can you mmm.... somehow make it so that I can download the black glass one? Becuase if you could that would be great.
andymorum Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2004   Interface Designer
Is use the Neowin patcher as well. :) To use the other colour schemes, double click the .msstyle file, and the choose a different colour in the second popup menu

narishma Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2004
I like this and would use it if there were more color variation in between the active and passive windows.
