Ultimate Clean version 3 by gsw953onDA Ultimate Clean version 3 by gsw953onDA
Ultimate Clean is a dark\minimal theme I have been
working on for almost a year now.
As I learn more and find small improvements I like to update this one.So about every 4 months the theme gets some refinements.

"The black and white halves of the Yin-Yang symbol are similar to the two sides of a coin.
They are different, and distinct, yet one could not exist without the other"

With that in mind,version 3 will be the yin & yang version!
You guys will see when you try it, but basically the main parts are dark while others remain light.Hopefully this will resolve some readability problems sometimes associated with dark themes!

Made to be run with Black Glass Enhanced
Instructions, previews and credits included

I still don't get why yours looks so much different from mine....the Cross/Minimize/Largen are not the same...+ my one is not transparent.....why is that?

I am sure how the buttons would be different,can you send me a screenshot?
the theme will only be transparent if you are running Black Glass Enhanced [link]
I am just using the stock Segoe UI font

Made a couple wallpapers for this theme, just because I didn't have any and wasn't a fan of the wallpapers that came with it.

Here they are - [link]

This is amazing, but I'm having one little problem..

My scroll bar on Google Chrome seems to be glitchy looking, it's hard to explain. I don't know if I installed it wrong(which I doubt because everything else turned out just fine), or if it has something to do with Chrome.

Any help would be very much appreciated!

I love the idea, 100% black, the simplest style, the simple fonts. I don't really care about the glass/transparency thing or the calendar-clock color. I dream of a simple really-black (not dark grey) theme that is minimal, functional and everything is visible (i.e. not black letters on black backround). Your theme is the closest I could find with dome minor disadvantages.
When I get the mouse above the minimize/maximize/close buttons they appear bright silver or something like that. I would prefer that they were visible in the first place and in a more minimal-black-color-style, like all the rest.
When many folders are open and I place the mouse on the taskbar, the menu (from which you choose which window to see) and the letters are the same color, grey, so the names are unreadable.
When I select something it is marked in a nice minimal gray border. When I click somewhere else,on the background for instance, the file is deselected but the border remains (and looks as if it's still selected).
It would be interesting for i.e. the notepad (and maybe other stuff too) to be in black backround with grey characters and not the standar white back-black letters.
I think that's all. Maybe I didn't installed it properly or maybe the Win7 Starter edition I use is to blame, I don't know.
Thank you for sharing. I would love a response.

Thanks for your comments
Version 2 will probably be more to your liking,it has a black Notepad background and black clock\calender [link]
The problem with having the Window color set to black is some programs have there text color hard coded to black but allow
there backgrounds to be change by the theme,this can result in a black on black window.I guess it depends on what programs you use,you may find it quite usable.
As for your other concerns(folder select & deselect,taskbar hover and buttons)I will have a look at change them and let you know shortly

nice one there Greg.you never cease to amaze.even though it's clean,still a great work of art.
some dont understand how hard it is to make images BLEND.you have this down to a science.
some one asked on another skin, if using a theme will effect the Memory usage.some one said NO.The answer is YES!and this depends on how heavy the image layers are in a theme.the heavier the theme the more memory used.this can be seen and tested with any memory gadget.
your themes are so light,my memory is hardly effected,as opposed to a theme with tones of images.
