Thanks splitwirez. It's such a small difference that I don't notice. I still don't notice the difference by looking at the pictures that Felix posted. I'm pretty sure that you can make the titlebar have the same gradient colors as windows 7 has instead of just the blue. I know that windows 98 had th...

I didn't notice, and still don't see the difference between the windows classic for windows 7 when it came out in 2009, and the classic theme for windows 95/98 which I linked. You can change the title bar colors in windows 7 to look exactly like the windows 95/98 theme that I linked. If it has bugs,...

You don't search for 'classic theme & windows 7', the theme just has to work with windows blinds, so just search for classic theme.
Here is a windows blinds theme that has windows 95/98 classic theme, which is what you want. https://www.wincustomize.com/explore/windowblinds/8628/

I think that they can use windows blinds, that would give the classic theme on windows 7 & keep gpu/hardware acceleration.

Nice. That's cool that you found a way to make live-tiles. I didn't know that Ivo included undocumented features into classicshell.

XML files might make it easier on you.

You're always welcome ^.^

Oh, ok. Having a more zerg-like border seems like a good idea. I don't mind the border that you had, but I think no orange in it would make it blend better.

A fake user-image sounds nice that the user can configure. Though a user might not want to go through the trouble? I'm not sure.

Wait, what? Live tiles? I thought there was no api for that. I think that was one of the reasons that tiles were not added to classic shell. Although there are other ways to implement tiles.

Back on topic. Live tiles, that's awesome. Good work Splitwirez. =)
