    Windows Vista Theme Link to this post

    Hey.

    I have developed a theme based on Windows Vista as part of the Google Highly Open Participation contest.

    I would be grateful for any feedback, comments, suggestions and improvements regarding this theme.

    Thank You.

    Good start but the background image is far to large at 285.52 kB, you should be using something which is a 10th of this size.

    Looks nice Ryan well done....

    The default paragraph font on the home page is way too small...

    Don't forget, were not all 17 ))))

    cheers, Dave Porter

    I did take into account the size of the background image, my justification was that it would remain in the cache so the user would only have to download it once when they viewed a website.

    I will see if I can cut it down.

    ----------------------------------------------

    Yes the default paragraph is too small. I will have to fix that, but first 17 year olds still need to sleep.

    Thank you.

    I have increased the size of some of the text.

    I hope this makes it better.

    I like very much this theme, but i agree with Tim, the background image is too heavy ^^

    What do you think about putting this one, it's the same but with less quality to be lighter only 89,6kb

    Or this one 100kb
