Description  
I used elements from floodgear. There is actually a lot more work to it than it would seem especially for text.
I'll post a usable desktop config once it's finished (haven't finished the windows or menus yet). Hope you all like it.

Thanks again for all your comments.
I've managed to work on the theme for a bit and got the windows done.

Screenshot of the theme here :

I've been thinking making a tutorial on how to do this kind of manipulations/pixel art would be interesting, does any of you think the same way ?

Thanks .

The samurize part of the theme should be finished tonight. That includes the desktop menus (system check, links ... etc) and the Shiimera player.
As for the windows/takbar parts ... well I'm still only learning Style XP and I won't send anything until I'm really happy about the theme.

Although I find Style XP to be straighforward, if any of you knows of a better/simpler alternative to setting up a GUI theme, please inform me.

Again, any C or C welcome.

Thanks for your comments.

I designed the taskbar myself. I'm experimenting with a new system for all the window notifications/minimizing etc.....
For the active window links in the taskbar, white indicates the window is selected, gray bars indicate the window isn't. The clock is fairly simple, and so are the system tray icons.
I'll try to keep the window/menu designs as clean as possible but also practical and readable.

Thanks.
For the Glowing effect : In Photoshop, add some text. Create another layer, under the text layer, name it glow. Then, click on the text layer icon holding the "Ctrl" key in the layer list to select all the elements in the text layer. Now select a color (I used turquoise) and fill the selection in the glow layer. Then, Filters -> Blur -> Gaussian Blur and set the value to about 2.0.
At this stage there should be some glow but you might want to duplicate the glow layer and play with layer opacity to get the desired effect.
Hope this helps.
