Man this theme pack rocks!
Too rarely I've seen GTK themes different from Ubuntu's MacOS's or Windows'. This is one a very much interesting theme!
Which is more, my laptop looks are now tweaked according to the time of day! Man, I would vote +5 if I could. - Mar 10 2010

Well, actually I had some elements of your theme prior to the install. Maybe it's because of it?

Anyway, after I restored my previous settings, I installed manually the metacity, xcursor and icon themes you provided. And you know what? If I select them manually, the 'start logo' is an Ubuntu-like one. So the problem appeared only when using the install script.
Hopefully this helps. - Oct 30 2009
Well, actually your work seems to be very good. Just ensure that users are always able to roll back. A good idea would be to automatically create an uninstall script. gconftool-2 will help you dump the settings before changing them. - Oct 30 2009
Man, your work looks nice, although some drawbacks spoil all impression:

1) Your installer is awful! Why must it be located on the Desktop? My Desktop folder is named different (XDG, you know)!
2) Where are backups? Where is an UNINSTALL feature? I installed your theme and played with it for 30 seconds, and - spent half-a-day restoring my ruined settings!
3) You promised there won't be any Windows logo? Why I see one right on the Start button? Please replace all of Windows logos with Ubuntus, Tuxes or something!
4) Why does the installer rename Computer, Home folder and Recycle bin? First, it breaks any localization, and it causes problems: I store my documents in ~/Docs folder, NOT in ~/. Please make renaming an option!

Anyhow, if applied manually and carefully, your theme does make the PC look just like an XP one. I'm voting up. - Oct 29 2009

Looks good! Very innovative! I'm tired of 'aero' and 'macosx' clones... And this is just what I was looking for!

Only one drawback... Why proprietary license? I couldn't find the original theme's license, but I do think it's free. Can't you please change your theme's license to GPL? - May 19 2009

Really nice! A must have, because we do need a theme looking similar to the gnome's default.
Propose it to be included in the default themes set! - Jan 30 2009

Nice theme, but... why proprietary license? I won't use it until I'm sure I won't break the agreement accidentally. This sucks! - Sep 30 2008

I'd vote for changing the colour scheme and using the theme as a default alternative for Ubuntu - Mar 18 2008
Try visiting

by the way, it says 'The GNU GPL can be used for general data which is not software...'

Can you make the icons set available under GNU GPL?
We'd vote it for a default set for a distro then.. - Mar 15 2008

The English link does not contain the needed file. It only downloads to my PC some 2.5Mb binary which looks too much like a MS-Win virus...

The Polish page works fine. - Mar 15 2008

actually, for now it demonstrates the beauty of Emerald's border effects. I haven't changed buttons at all. Trying to invent something better, something sleek... Anyway, ver. 1.0 is way ahead.. - Dec 04 2007
