Description:

I always thought that Windows 95/98/2000 had a clean if stark look. This is an attempt to keep the less is more spirit of the original, but updating it for the modern desktop.

Some notes:
* Requires SVN murrine, which ships with recent versions of Ubuntu and, I assume, other distributions.
* The colour scheme is not entirely faithful to the original. If you want to try it out (and see why I changed it) look for the two values you need to change in line 6 of the gtkrc.
* The background is #008282
* If you decide to comment remember that this is not the proper forum to express your opinion of Microsoft or its products. This is a website for Linux users, so I assume we all know where we stand. Right?

Comments, suggestions, bugfixes, etc, welcome.

1.1
- Made the selection background conform to the tango palette for a more gnomeish look.
- Includes a modification of Look 2000 metacity decoration that uses the tango palette.
- Adjusted the value of the background. It's now identical to 2000/Me.
- Corrected the colour of tooltips.
- Made insensitive text darker for better visibility.
- Fixed inconsistency with unselected radio/check in menu.
- Fixed combobox bug I introduced with 1.01.
- Enlarged size of sliders by 1px (closer to original, but still sideways).
- Slight alternation (by 0.05!) in the prelight and active value, to match scrollbars
- Fixed nautilus location bug

1.01
- Wouldn't you know it? A minute after I release this I realise I have stumbled into a known murrine bug. Switched the menus to a different style. Sorry folks!

Thank you. The maxise still needs some work. The middle is never centered so far.

Ubuntu 8.10 - this theme is not working! It's installing correctly (directory structure - OK), but I cant see it in theme menu, only standard themes here =(

There are two ways of installing a theme:

1) Download the archive and simply drag it over the GNOME Appearance Preferences dialog.

2) Manually extract the archive in ~/.themes

Both of these work fine on Ubuntu 8.10.

Great theme! Good balance between the cleanness of Win98/2000 and the organic feel of clearlooks. Not my kind of theme, though, but it sure looks great!

I like it because while it looks like the Windows classic theme, it still holds some originality. And it doesn't look all pixely!
