    I used to use StyleXP, but I've gone back to using the uxtheme.dll hack which comes pre-applied with my XP-DVD. I have the Vista theme from http://www.studiotwentyeight.com/

    I do like WindowsBlinds sexy effects though. I'm glad they've improved on it.

    BTW, a little off topic, but did you take a look at the new DFI SLI-DR Expert?

    I used windowblinds, or tried it but I didn't like it nearly as much as uxtheme, available here

    it just overwrites a system file and then you can use many themes without other standalone programs...I highly recommend it :)

    The site mentioned has a bunch (in the completed themes forum), or deviantart in skins/themes, which i think is the best.

    ThemeXP.org has some ok ones. Some of them come in .exe with adware, so be cautious. I usually open the .exe with WinRAR and extract the themes themselves.

    I also like the themes made from Studio Twenty Eight

    I took the plunge, and picked up WB5. The glass theme is really sweet!

    The glass theme is sweet. Though a couple of things could be changed. The 'Start Menu' I think is too light. I can't see the 'Log Off' & 'Turn Off the Computer' buttons unless I move my mouse over them. But it's cool to have these new effects for our themes.

    I actually bought it, only $19.95. There is currently no way to acquire it by other means at this point, and time.
