My favorite is Jade with disabled sidebar so that you have this grey taskbar, I love it.
Also good is Jade with DCE thingie enabled and transparent task- and sidebar.

But my real favorite is the Aero style from Build 5048. I do like the start menu with its transparency etc.

The reason I have chose not to release it is because there is very little to release. As I explained - the screenshots show literally everything that was done. I didn't show greenPlex's green windows simply because there were none, they never got done.

Edit: Your best bet in getting some of the stuff left over is to contact me over MSN or PM

Green DCE/DWM, it has the MS internals feel.

I love the Plex style, espeically the one in builds 4033/4039. Now if only there was such a theme that is unmodified and the code is ported to XP...

I think I'd go with both Plex and Slate as my favorite styles!

I thought at the time, and infact still do, that Slate was the nicest looking visual style to come bundled with Windows. They should have made Aero basic look like that, in my opinion.
