Wow, I don't really understand why people think this looks so much like Vista. The buttons are placed similarly, but honestly this is pretty different. Very nice job, a definite download for me!

I'm not a huge fan of green, but that looks really nice, would appeal to the SuSE folks.
Here is the thing...those that complain about Vista themed inhancements, are the remnants of the "Hating Windows makes ME SOOOO LEET AND COOL" crowd.
Ever notice that these crybabys never whine about Mac inspired enhancements???
The Linux community will always be filled with children that think hating something becuase it is popular, somehow makes them cool. These are the same types that upload "Look what I accidentally made with Gimp" wallpapers!
Not unlike the "Look what I accidentally made with Bryce" wallpapers that pollute sites like DeviantCrap, and Wincustomize.

why some people seems to feel obligated to cry everytime someone post a vista-related thing... Choose what you like and let those who enjoy this kind of theme...

Nice colors btw :)

I think the problem is less that that the themes are Vista themes than that there more than a dozen Vista themes on this site that are essentially identical in just about every detail.

I'll reserve criticism on this one, since it is differently colored and therefore has a rationale for existing. Still: if you're going to post a "new" Vista (or OSX, or BeOS, or whatever) theme, it is probably a good idea to check out similar themes to make sure you're not just wasting space.

I don't usually use Vista-based themes for the very reason that I switched to Linux to avoid Windows (and its look). But I do have to say that I like your choice of color.

I can't stand copying Vista. It's not good enough to being copied 10000000 times!!!! If you wanna have Vista-looking OS ... simply buy it! Linux is Linux and I don't think that it's nessecary to copy it. I voted "bad!"

We all hate Microsoft, but you really need to consider the fact that Aero is the product of likely hundreds of collaborating artists and designers. Its going to be something to admire, whether your spite is reasonable enough use and/or build off of it or not. Is it possible to surpass the elegance of the Vista and OSX GUI? Hell yea! Heck, some would say its already happened! Until the day that everyone agrees on this however, there can be nothing wrong with enjoying it.

And this design is awesome! Look! We've already surpassed the best that real Aero can do! http://spikex.net/i/v/2.PNG

I've noticed that windeco is shared a lot by many community vendors and even sold by some. Take StyleXP for windows, you can change your windows decoration to default kde style in windows. Plus a plethora of other types.

Don't like Microsoft, but I like the theme.

If that's what it takes to make MS lovers comfortable with Linux, they can choose one of the "better" themes later.

I would love to see YOUR theme that looks nothing like vista and is absolutely amazing, but it looks like you have made exactly ZERO uploads to the site...
