Very good!

Like always! You maintain a high level of quality in all your work! But, I don't think that you can use the logo without John's permission. You may want to change that. It looks great though!

Nice.

The splash is really nice, but perhaps you can change the "Portable" font to something most people own, or can download, so they can change the splash screen, but still have a generic font, cause it looks nice, I would use it.

It's...

Meta Bold LF Roman, it's propitiatory, from what I've found it's about 300 dollars. As well, it's commercial, so can't be distributed. That's why I suggested a Generic Font.

What I've done...sadly...is typed my text in here, and then took a screenshot, and the pixel blended, or cropped it. Blum Sad eh. If you have a font making program, you can get all of the letters from their, then create it yourself. Blum

You will have to hack your uxtheme.dll file to accept themes not digitally signed by microsoft. I haven't yet figured out a way to make a theme appear to be signed but it really isnt.

I think this work is very well constructed and (even if effort wasn't used) much effort is seen in the end result. I like it a lot, but as per usual with anything that becomes well known on the net, there are many copyright issues... Shame really. I think John could do with a graphical designer like you.

And that was kinda my point. Distribution of workload could really help John push out the apps, but as we all know, as soon as you're relying on someone else to do their part in the project, you lose control of when the application is finished.

Nice.

Dude, you rock. I have a request, though.

Could you either upload higher-res versions of your wallpaper (like 1600x1200 [4:3] and 1440x900 [16:10]) or make the PSD available?

Thanks.

P.S. Yes, my computer is very capable of running those resolutions quite well -- and at the same time. My video card has 256 MB of VRAM and the following outputs: DVI, RGB, s-video, and composite. Also, my card supports dual RGB, so if I had a splitter, I could use up to 5 screens. I'm currently using only two of the outputs (DVI to a 19" 16:10 LCD, composite to a 62" 16:9 HDTV), but I plan to get another LCD monitor in here soon. And if you're wondering why I'm using a composite video cable to connect an HDTV, the answer is simple: my computer is completely opposite the TV in the room, and the only 25' video cable I could find in the house was composite. However, I plan to switch to s-video as soon as I can find a 25' cable.
