I wasn't happy with any of the Vista themes I could find out there, they were all too chunky or messy or bright, so I made my own.
This is essentially a hack of VistaBlackRounded by olinux, itself a hack of VistaBut by roberTO21. I also drew ideas from VistaRoundedFocusSmall by soc, and Correcamins 1 by Toni Lara.
I basically darkened the borders, desaturated the inactive controls, increased lightness and saturation on hovered controls, thinned the borders a little, fixed curving, and removed borders from maximized windows.
I've specified controls to be Clearlooks, and icon style to be Vista-Inspirate (requires nuoveXT) in the theme file, but you can change them if you like.
Icons: Vista-Inspirate 1.0 - http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=28352
Icons: nuoveXT 1.6 - http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=26448
This is my first Metacity theme, please let me know what you think, or if I have done anything wrong.
