Pristine OS 1.2

WAIT! before you dismiss this theme as one of those innumerable vista clones being released everyday, I ask you
to download and apply Pristine OS. I am sure you'll find it somewhat 'different'. In one word it's 'my' version of
windows vista (theme) :)

Part of inspiration came from Royale Vista [link] by dobee.


Update: Added two substyles with 2 font choices; Segoe UI and Calibri

Big Update 03/08/06: Added another substyle with a new start panel
Improved the smaller start panel as requested
Improved Taskbar buttons as requested
Removed all the glitches reported as yet
Improved the corners and borders to give pristine OS a more crispy look

Update 08/29/06

Added two sub-styles with two different compact start panels
Added tahoma font for all four sub-styles
Fixed a few bugs here and there


1) You can switch between segoe ui, calibri and tahoma via font size menu

2) Download fonts from here [link] if you don't already have them installed.

3) Enable 'clear type' font setting for best results.


The monitor icon used in shellstyle will be released soon.

New ideas and suggestions are most welcome.

This was my favorite theme for XP. I really wish I knew how to port it to Vista. :/

i dont understand how to make my icons and start menu look like yours =(

Good theme!

Only one suggestion: the inactive window font glow makes it kinda hard/irritating to read.
ayaneforever Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2008
I love this theme! It's sorta like vista except not so...busy. the only thing I don't like is the logoff and shutdown at the bottom. I'd like them to be a little more nt, or buttons like actual vista, but that's my personal taste. still love it!

When will be available a Vista version? This is one of the most awesome themes I have ever seen.
zerosabort Featured By Owner May 9, 2008

One of my most favorite Vs of all times man. Finally I found the creator. Thanks for sharing man.

did you know that you can use some more realistic glow effect using png files? I just dont know if you can make them bigger than the skin's borders like with aero but still, a bit of recode outside of stylebuilder could do the job!
In fact, most of the msstyle files can be replaced with pngs, including the start menu and systray's background, close and minimize set of buttons and a few other goodies here and there...You should explore that...And codes, of course:P

Hi, very good gallery ;)
randominality Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2008
been using this for ages - thanks sooo much this skin is truly great. I hate the whole vista clones and all the cluttered themes that are aiming for a similar style but this just pulls it off so much better with the simplicity. Also i like the idea of a red and black version![link]

dude this skin rocks, you've done a very good job :) have you got any icons that go with the skin?
sorez Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2007
Very nice.
I'm not sure about the "selected" items on the taskbar. It just seems like a solid colour which ruins the nice glow effect.
killalopez Featured By Owner May 20, 2007
this is awsome, nice work mate.

It's perfect!
chocolatemuffins Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2007
I LOVE this theme, I've tried lots of different visual styles and Windowblinds skins but keep coming back to this one. Well done :)

Just one request, however - I would much prefer to use WB, but I dock my taskbar at the top of the screen, and the WB version of this theme has a truncated orb start button that looks quite bad. Is there any chance at all that you would update the WB version to fix this glitch?

I would also love to see Tener VS ported to WB!

Thank you :)

Choices which are unselectable are nearly invisible - either in menus or in various info screens - it looks like on this screenshot (from Opera):

Some issues with positioning - this is status bar from XnView:

this is my favourite XP theme, and I've tried them all. Damn near perfect.

hey, nice layout. things look great, one problem, i dont have that little arrow in the icon tray. you know whats up with that? thanks
Ashalee010 Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2007
Try doing this for windowblinds instead of VS. It would look great. Just a suggestion.

How to use? Have tried both this one and Trener. But I can only get some features to work...I have the uxtheme.
