Is anyone else having problems finding the theme after being redirected to DevianArt. Why not just upload it here?

The On/Off toggles are invisible for me. I am using Gnome 3.8 from Arch Linux gnome-unstable repository. Any idea how to fix that?

This is exactly the shell theme I've been looking for. It goes great with both dark and light themes and its plain and simple. Keep up the good work!

Also, I hope you dont mind (and if you do let me know), but I've packaged your theme for Arch linux users in the AUR: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=58942

Arch linux users can install this (assuming usage of yaourt) by running "yaourt -S gnome-shell-theme-default-mod"

beautiful theme, congratulations! The only flaw, in my opinion, is the size of fonts on the popup panel. No?

I just made an account so I could say how amazing this theme is. It's what the default theme should have been like!

I saw what theme extension not comparability with gs 3.4. I'm use extension from repository on my Ubuntu 11.10. I hope extension on site will works soon.
Now, you can replace original theme to this (make backup) in /usr/share/gnome-shell/theme, but I'm not recommend do that.
