Description:

I didnt think there was a nice vista-ish theme anywhere so I made this to fit my own liking.
It has smoother shading on the buttons and in my opinion alot nicer borders than most themes out there so here you go. Do what you want with it:)

I made from several themes I found lying around. Cant remember which ones. If anyone feels im violating someones copyright or such I'll just take it down.

Just like amanda, I see that you did quite a great job. I like M$'s style, but still, I'm looking for something else, whatever that is.
I just wanted to say that you did a great work, and I'm voting Good =P

I think you did a fabulous job. I don't personally like the vista-type buttons so I'm not downloading, but I did vote good! Well done.

...there are a lot of stupid people that doesn't apreciate the WORK of a person =)
Maybe they don't know that it's not so easy begin from 0, so, first someone has to improve his skills "imitating" something (and it's not so easy though =) ).

So, don't complain, if you want originality, instead of criticize his work, give him some hints.

Now, the artist =)
Good work!
I voted GOOD ;)

I usually don't add comments since it seems people rarely have anything nice to say, obivously. But I like this theme. You did a great job.

You can't deny that the vista window theme is very nice even though it is from micro$oft.

And for those people that have issues with this not being creative or original, how many other themes on this site are just modifications of someone else's theme be it based a vista theme, a mac theme, or a custom theme? I can't tell you how many knockoffs I have seen based on oxygen or human, which I feel are not very nice themes to begin with.

Glad to hear that you like my style.
Im not so good at creating my own buttons though but perhaps i'll try it later.

I like the simplicity of this layout so thats why I used it as a foundation.

Sorry, I don't want to disturb!
Normally adult people know, why
and what they are doing.
You sticked some pieces together,
as x-hundredth persons did before you
and called it vista.
Are you an imitator? - What was your intention?

Hey, if you dont have anything nice to say or some constructive criticism then keep it to yourself ok?

Keep patient, please!
Don't you know, that it is
quiete impossible to give
constructive criticism to
a vista-theme.
.
Mmmmmmhhh.......
.
The only constructive idea I found
is: Move it to wincustomize.org

Obvious troll is obvious.

Either way, I've found a better vista look-alike. Though, this one looks nice too.
