Perfection at it's best!

Aero Xtreme 7 XP Alpha 6

:new: authentic Windows 7 black glass taskbar for bottom substyles
:new: authentic Windows 7 Start Orb for bottom substyles that glows above the 40 pixel taskbar
:new: authentic Windows 7 rebar grippers with perfect vertical positioning
:new:perfectly positioned clock like in Windows 7 (TClock required)
:new:working show desktop button (TClock required)

I will reveal how I got the show desktop button to work shortly after beta 1 is released. It doesn't have any hover or pressed states but at least it works!

EDIT: Adjusted Quick Launch Icon position and added black borders in preview to better show hover state over Quick Launch icons. The light might not be quite centered so I will have to redo the Aeroshot...

EDIT: Turns out that the light image is actually thinner on the left side in Windows 7 (at least in build 7260). I still need to update it however since it cuts off at the ends to quickly!

Coming in Alpha 7 and in beta1

Alpha 7 will feature the new Start Menu for bottom substyles. Beta 1, scheduled to be released on Friday, July 31, 2009, will have normal and slim versions of the top and bottom taskbars with 48 pixel Start Menu support.

As always, your comments are much appreciated and don't forget to add me to your deviant watch list if you would like to be informed as soon as beta 1 is released,

Thanks for your interest in Aero Xtreme 7 XP!

Nearly can`t wait for this.
Ohh!! a day for try a release, Thanks InTime69. Just waiting for it. Is really an awesome work that will bring my Old XP into Life :dance:
For sure! It definitely looks awesome on my XP system. I absolutely love it! Almost like having the real thing...
and about the showdesktop buttons, can you tell me a little about it.
TClock is also the only way to get the Time and Date perfectly setup just like in Windows 7. It's not possible with WB alone. The only thing that can't be adjusted is the line space between the the time and date. Windows 7 is 1 or 2 pixels more apart!
Ok thanks again for the ansewr.
It's done with the help of TClock... A tutorial to do this will be submitted shortly after beta 1 is released. The regular Windows XP clock will appear off centered if you don't use TClock. It looks a lot better on 2 lines like in Windows 7 so I am highly recommending TClock! I love it!
it is awesome mate,i am badly waiting for it
you know, few are the themes i try in WindowBlinds even if i didn't use it all the time, and yours are always in my list :D
