OK, lemme try this again...for some reason, I posted this the other day, and then, last night this site went down and when it came back up, I noticed that my most recent submission was gone, so I\'m therefore resubmitting it.

This theme is dedicated to ex-Windows users as well as people who are dual-booting and have wished that they could have the colors from the color schemes that came with Windows 95, 98, Me, and 2000. To those who have ever wished they could have that, your wish has just become reality with this series of themes that feature the EXACT colors of those color schemes.

However, since we all know that there are some cool things you can do in Linux that you can\'t do in Windows, this series of themes also illustrates that too, in the following ways:

* These themes all use the Murrine engine to produce a glossy 3-D look that just simply isn\'t available with these colors in Windows.

* You have the freedom to use whatever Metacity or Xfwm theme you wish to use and still have the intended titlebar colors displayed, provided your chosen Metacity or Xfwm theme is designed to do this (to illustrate this ability, I\'m using the \"Wallis\" Xfwm theme in the screenshots, which is included with most distros that feature the Xfce desktop environment).

* Unlike Windows, you have the freedom to use whatever icon theme you wish (of course).

* If you want the 2-color look on the titlebar, I\'ve even included an ODS spreadsheet file that tells you all of the text and background colors are for each of those color schemes, thereby allowing you to use whatever Emerald theme you wish and just simply plug the stated colors into them in the Emerald Theme Manager.

* When it comes to the desktop background colors that were used in the original color schemes on Windows, I\'ve put those in the panel bar(s) along with a glossy look of their own. Or, alternately, if you wish, that can be commented out and therefore disabled.

Eat your heart out, Microsoft. For the rest of you -- enjoy! :-)


1.02: Re-packaged with proper permissions for those who wish to install this series of themes into their /usr/share/themes directory.

1.01: Redid and tidied up the screenshots.

When I run a gtk app from a terminal with one of the w9x Revisited themes set, I get the following warnings/errors:

I'm using murrine-
I can modify each theme to solve these, of course, but would you fix the version on this site too?
