My Linux box cries everytime it has to display something like this. Nobody in their right mind stays with a theme/style like this. Stop wasting your time creating butt-ugly themes and channel all that energy into saving your money and buying WindowsXP - seems like you love it so.

The intelligent folks will stay with Linux.

Just senseless flames...

Perhaps M$ have some bad programmers, but the have very good disigners...

Also such skins will help newbies to work with kde.

but who wants this? I have never liked Windows XP look and feel (hate that ugly green start-button :P).

How do you get the "Go" to say "Start"?

M$ has a killer interface. so does kde tho. much more configurable, almost to a fault

Considering the incredible amount of anti-Microsoft sentiment around here, this is the most popular theme. Odd.

O, well! Now I can ask "Guess, what OS is installed on my box? Do you think, is it XP? He-he, you are wrong!"

If people want xp then they should buy unstable, slow and unsecure crap from M$. Keep linux clean of the style wich is linked so damn hard to those 3 holy points of a good OS

Looks like pretty lame imitation of btw totally shitty XP look - I think we need more authentic themes/styles, not just copycat artwork after the look of the very foe.

Totaly agree...

Had the same feeling regarding "My Login Manager", too freaking WinBlows like.

Like I said regarding the other one, leave copying stuff from other OSes to MickeySoft.

Since I'm forced to use Win2K at the office I installed WindowBlinds so I can change the look of my boxen, all the other wannabe geeks think I'm running X.

ops
the installation return me these:
QPixmap: Cannot create a QPixmap when no GUI is being used
What I have to do?
P.S. 10x

I found out how to make the kicker look like the real deal: you need a Karamba theme called WinBar (you can find it here on KDE-Look.org)

is there will be xp style for kde 3.2?

can't understand why this theme isn't in standard artwork package

Report

KDEThemer

I don't think it can be in standard artwork because it may be copyrighted, etc. and Microsoft may go to court or something about it. So I don't think it can be in standard artwork.

And people- stop arguing about this style! It just imitates XP, there are styles that imitate all sorts of OS'es out there! If you don't like XP, then don't use the style. (That's why I don't use it).

Besides that, I would give it a "good" since it is a very nice imitation (even though I think that the XP style is ugly)

The only imagenable reson for composeing this theme - you are collecting the longest list of needless comments.

Hello, the original XP-Taskbar is an Karamba-Theme. Look in the Karamba Section!

In KDE 3.1.4 a taskbar have gray, 2-3 px border and buttons of programs on taskbar not look like on your screenshot but look like original KDE. How to do it?

This theme is a pretty good imitation- though I prefer something original. This could be good for people migrating from Windows to Linux because of the My Computer and Network Neighborhood clones.

The bad is that I can't get the panel to look real- like in the first screenshot! How do you do that?

I'm not going to use this for my default theme (because I dont' like Microsoft, and I think the theme's kind of ugly anyway), but I would like to use it to play pranks! :-)

Why are some people being such utter DICKS about this theme?

It's called freedom of choice - who are you to put this down?

For your information you can get Linux visual styles for XP.

Take it or leave it.

The theme looks great, and the xp luna theme is quite sleek, but How do you get the taskbar and start menu to look like the real deal (first screenshot). Also, since this is licenced under GPL, how bout some avid themers work on making this one look even more like luna, or possibly make a spinoff for some other popular themes.

I am curious: How have you achieved the 'start-button' on kicker?

are you going to fix the corner of the windows decoration? Other than that it looks almost perfect, just need to add the BSOD screen saver and it will be ready for my guest account ;)
