Great job!

Can you make version with swapped active and inactive window frame color (like in mare-m theme)?
It would be really great!

The mare-m work is very nice. Yours too.
Could you make a "no-picture" version of the startmenu ?
Also a little bit more differnce between focus and no focused windows would be nice.

Great work by the way.

Thank you. If more people request a start-menu without the user picture, I'll look into it.

Making the inactive window frame white looks ugly, but maybe I could make the close button colour lighter in the next update.

ok for the picture. I'll dig into reshack to reslove it the time you update.

For the inactive, it's true that's already light, so some xhite wouldn't be a good choice.
Don't touch the button either, it's perfect like this... i will accomodate, no worries.

See you.

Was looking for a theme that looked good non-transparent for my crappy 'lil netbook and liked this so much I ended up using this for my desktop as well. Also, the background picture is awesome. Thanks!

Awesome, I just moved back from Windows 8 to Windows 7 and have been going for a light colored theme setup using Litestep and this is EXACTLY what I was itching for. Awesome job, haven't run into any issues yet, feels like I'm running a skinned Windows 8 now which is exactly what I wanted.
