Hi! I like it :)

The only thing I'm still looking for, is how to get the buttons closer to eachother... And that's why I just can't skin Vista yet to make it look like Mac. Windowblinds isn't a working option for me either :(

But besides that, the theme looks cool!

on aero, for now is not possible have closer distances. ofcourse i could designe and making look closer, but the button would work only at a half, that means that solution has not the fuctionality a user wants.

But on aero basic the buttons at closer , equal distances, see aero basic of one of my vista visual styl

When do you plan to release it?

HOPE this month.


I am working to this from November 2006(with windows vista rc1 first, and vista rtm after) UP to now December 2008, having done on past some realeases, see my gallery http://zeusosx.deviantart.com/gallery/


because changing the code make sometimes things not working as should, forexample streched the corners of an image[even if the sizing margins are corect] or taskbar mouse over images reversed control, those all must be solved first.[at least the most]

ZEUS os X F OS for vista by ZEUSosX http://zeusosx.deviantart.com/art/ZEUS-os-...vista-107157411

ABOUT LOGO apple buttons and other image elements , i make my personal osx version view (for windows vista) and not (a copy of) that of Apple's , so i preffer using a white apple logo instead of black one, but i thank mvosx1094 for the offer, thank also BlaZeOSX for the support and all people support my work.

My work is based on the spirit of os X, and not a copy of it.

ZEUS OS X : FOS designing rules, follow the principles of abstractiveness and simplicity, under Zeus inspiration.

IN ancient and in nowdays Hellenic (=Greek) [ Active CODE ] language, every letter, and every word is a specific number , and it has a specific meaning.

ZEUS ( or DEUS or DIAS) is Master of immortal Gods in Hellenic (=Greek) Active CODE [arithmetic machine logic] language.

His Main weapon is lightning and lightnes. He could transformate his alive code MATERIAL BEING to whatever He likes.

APPLE is the given gift from ZEUS, in this Hellenic (=Greek) tradition.(so the using of apple logo i choose, and ancient hellenic(=greek) symbols like maianders, tetraskelion of Zeus [tetraskelion of Zeus=svastica = gammadion, is the symbol of ZEUS in ancient Hellas=Greece],crosses and much more )

SO , i am trying to show the relations of the clasic hellenic=greek with modern times and eternity.

The light comes from apple's technology, interface also looking, and i Think that it is our choice to transforn it as a part of progress in our tradition style.

On screenshot there exist a golden chest of king Philip II , father of Alexander the Great, with the sixteenth Macedonian Sun, from Macedonia Hellas Greece (4-3rd century bC

All features referenced in my work are subject to change.

I do not allow modifications of my work.

Thank you All of you, for your support.

Made in H E L L A S (= Greece ).

Inspired by Zeus.
