Great, thanks for sharing... and for mentioning my Gtk theme :)

Also added the silver theme here at gnome-look.

Could you make a GTK-theme for the silver edition? It is not the same as for the blue theme. For example the buttons are blue-bordered instead of orange in true Windows XP. The panel is silver....

This Gtk theme is not finished yet, so I really don't know when I'll have time to make another one...
thank you for being involved with this project (is this a project now, isn't it?)... XP 2002 ;)
have a nice weekend,

How about Olive Green one? Appreciate if you can make that too. We already have Silver and Royale version...

Looking forward to your work.

IF you read the description, you should have noted that krig did not make the metacity so you are pointing this out to the wrong person.

Thanks for pointing the error origin... :)
me too never thought about being so popular the theme... maybe the blue is magic ;D
as you saw already is a theme I made time ago, maybe is a return to origin (at least the interface only) for a lot of penguin users?

long live to XP, because was the first love for a lot of people...we know Linux is better though ;)

Hi,

Looks great! But the spacing of the buttons in the titlebar is no 100% correct.

This is your work:

This is the real WinXP:

The problem is that your bar is 1 pixel too thin + your buttons are 1 pixel too high. Result: the buttons are 2 pixels too high.

You know, this would be nice to toss into my Xubuntu install for use on the Guest accounts.

The only hang-up I have is that the text on the panels for things like the clock, the inactive windows in the taskbar, etc., should be white. Otherwise, +1 good from me.

Krig, on XFCE, most GTK themes that call for white text on the panels fail to make that text white. Hellion0, what you need to do is download and install a program called XFApplet, which lets you use GNOME's applets on XFCE's panels.

When you right-click on the XFCE panel, just select "XFApplet", and it'll give you a list of GNOME applets you can use. For example, you can select the clock, and it'll display with white text, right there in XFCE! :-)

I've got Ubuntu (GNOME) on my desktop computer but Xubuntu (XFCE) on my laptop, and I've got that on there, and it works flawlessly! :-) Give it a try, I think you'll like it.

Not that I like the XP theme at all, but if I were going to use it for some odd reason, I would certainly use this. It looks exactly the same

This theme is really good. There's too many Vista themes, and the only XP theme I could ever find was the "eXperience" one, which required its very own GTK engine. So this one's cool cuz it uses a more common GTK engine (my yum repo has it waiting to install!)

Could you make one that uses the Zune theme's widgets? (google: zune theme). If not I could probably use this theme as a base for it.

Thank you for nice comments :) I don't know if I'll have enough time to made another theme, or mod this one, but if you want you could modify for your personal taste, I'm happy you like it :)

Have a good week !

I Voted good, this is a great theme!
Good work!
There are a lot of people that like windows/mac appereances, that's DOESN'T MEAN THAT they DISLIKE LINUX.
I love linux, but I don't like the too simply graphic, that's it.

I personally hate the look of XP and always use Blackbox for windows.

This reminds me of all those countless re-installs and driver searches.

But it is extremely accurate, If you like XP you won't find a better theme.

But does any one like XP round here?

I'm not that much of a fan of the XP-ish or Vista themes myself, but I've got 'em set up as the theme on my computer for my wife as well as for any guests we have that want to use the computer just for the sake of familiarity. This, BTW, is a very well-done theme.
