I've been waiting for something to replace my current windows theme for quite some time. aerial by ~danillooc did just that. This is by far the coolest theme I have seen in a long, long while. And while you're at it, don't forget to grab aerial Player 1.0, a matching media player skin and aerial RL, a matching Rainlendar skin. ( Featured by Kevin )
Woah this is really nice! Wish it was for win7. Needs to be shinier though :P Sorry for the tendency toward mainstream ideals :doh:

I really like everything about this skin. Beautiful scrollbars :D

@firstfooter: Hey Rick, was on GUIOlympics 2006 and the skin was Acrylic but it's not out there for download thought. I have updated it for Vista and latest WB and I'll up it soon.
