Simple, clean and elegant.

The icon theme I use is a little bit modified well known elementary-monochrome (by DanRabbit). The mod called absolute-mono can be downloaded here: http://rghost.net/1975508

To use version 0.7 one should install the latest version of murrine engine (corresponding deb-files attached).

Thanks for the screenshot and your efforts. If I can get my desktop to look exactly like that your theme and font choice will make me switch to linux :)

My eyes suck I need sharpness :S

Great theme. Keep it up.

Except for the theme, I really like the wallpaper. Where did you get it, and where can I download it? It's beautiful!

Thanks! The font is Droid Sans. In Debian-based distros you can get it by installing ttf-droid package.

Hi man. Good work, I really like it.
A detail: I don't know if it's only happens to me, but I identified that OpenOffice (3.2) behave a little messy with this theme. Particularly, it puts "bold" style font into the "boxes" and menus (like font name, font size and menu bar, among others).

I have to say that this minimalism cautivated me, perhaps more than elementary :P

I hope that you can solve this issue that I presented.

Keep going! Excelent Job!!!

Thanks for the comment. But I can't reproduce the problem you have. It seems ok here. Can you take a screenshot of that OpenOffice's mess? It would be really helpful.

Ok, as I can see in provided screenshots, you use Delicious font as default. I don't really know why, but when I use this font, I have the same problem in OpenOffice. If I use any other font then everything is ok. And the problem with Delicious remains even if I use any other theme (not just absolute). Sorry, man, but I can't even imagine what the problem is. At the moment, I suppose, you should try some other font.

I like this a lot. Simple and clean. Is there any way to get the window titles in the centre? Mine are all left aligned.

It is not easy for you to change the source of the metacity's theme. Probably I should make a variant of this theme aligning text at window's center. Anyway this would be useful. I'll make it soon. Thanks for the comment.

You can now use absolute-center theme for your purposes.

That's fantastic man! Really good of you to respond so quickly. I think I will be keeping this theme for quite some time, I have grown a little tired of Elementary. Your theme goes nicely with the OxygenColors icons, which are my favourite. Great job!
