You've said all the ones so far would be impossible to duplicate exactly, but you've done such a good job on them I can't really tell the small differences between them. :) I'm sure whatever you come up with will be fine.

This is a really nice skin, juniper7. I've always missed the good 'ol Windows XP classic theme menu, and this works very well. However, if you're like me you want a menu that follows your system colors. One that feels a bit more... native to Windows. Well using the XP Classic Retro skin as a base, ...
