    Default Parnell's Vista Mashup
    Hello all.

    I made a Vista Mashup theme using some elements I found here. I do not take credit for creating ANY of it. (...Hence the Mashup name...) See details below.





    The bulk of the theme came from Zen_Azazel's Vista Ultimate.

    The Camera icon is from ebl4287's Leopard Ultra Theme.

    ...And many more. If you see some of your work on here, just let me know and I'll give you the propper props.

    it's look ok. To bad the squares don't seem te be aligned properly. Some of them are wide and some are pretty tight.. Could look better if there were aligned better so that the right row of icons fit inside the squares for example.

    And the setting and SMBprefs icons have a reflection but no other icons have that same reflection. Maybe you should have put up a little more effort and it would look a lot better.

    Haha...Believe me, it's not lack of effort, it's a complete lack of knowing what the heck I'm doing. Let me work on it and see if I can make that better.

    Thanks for the input, tho!

    It is now in the downloads section pending approval. The status bar is part of the theme.

    Oh, and I removed the grid...It is still in the theme download if you should want it.

    Thanks!

    It has not made installer, but that would certainly be cool!

    Both the Internet Explorer and the "settings gear" icon link to safari. I'm not sure why.

    The triangle is the symbol for Windows Media Player, but yes it actually launches the iPod.

    It's kinda sacrelige to put a Microsoft theme on an Apple product, but I think it's pretty funny and not bad looking. It certainly does turn a lot of heads when people see it. I tell them it's "Vista Mobile..." Haha.

    WHY?
    Because you have no idea how to use it. I made that dock and gave specific intructions on how to make it work. It seems you got the files but didn't read the description.

    WHAT HAVE WE LEARNED?
    Next time create your own stuff.

    Ok, now there's no need to be childish and whiney . I said in the original post...

    I would love to see your "specific intructions" on how to make your dock "work". Where are these "specific intructions"?

    No thank you. I am a modder, not a graphic designer. BTW, Did you create all of those copyrighted Microsoft images, or did you just collect them and make them into a theme? Maybe Microsoft is ripping you off too? Maybe we're ALL out to get you...

    Lighten up man. Life's too short to be a whiner.

    I love this theme !! If you have time, can you do me a favor though ?

    Can you change the StatusBar.png so that it doesnt have those three little boxes on the right side (the grey one followed by the grey one followed by the orange one) ? I use my Bluetooth headset all the time and if the Bluetooth indicator is on, it doesn't look centered on those boxes !!

    Please ?

    OBVIOUSLY I didn't create any of this otherwise I wouln'dt have tried to do a VISTA THEME! Too bad you're just a modder, well I, as a graphic designer, fell very bad seeing how people missuse what I put together. Some of the icons I used (and now you're using) I had to clean up and redesign in some cases, the dock was a pain to put together in order to accurately resemble vista's original dock. It's not that I took a screen caputure of my desktop and paste the vista orb on my iphone. No it isn't that easy. I had to redesign everything. This takes some time and effort and seeing it wasted on some sort of badly-put-together theme makes me sad

    well I guess to each its own.

    @Zen: Dude, you're not Jesus. So chill out. Whoop-de-do, you are a graphic designer. No one in here is trying to belittle you, except you. This guy just wanted to create his version of your theme. It's not that deep. You created your version of a Vista theme, why can he not?
    And it will be like a taco inside a taco within a Taco Bell that's inside a KFC that's within a mall that's inside your dream!
