First of all, I like your theme alot.
I have a problem with it though. When I right click on a taskbar icon the jumplist is bugged.
Probably due to me using Windows 8.1. There is a fix for it on the Visual Style Builder forums. But I'm not capable of using that program at all.
Could you try and fix this ? When you google "windows 8.1 visual style jump list", it is the top most result.

Thank you.

I read "3.1" and thought that it was a Windows 3.1 visual style U_U

Присоединяюсь к предыдущему оратору, тема шикарнейшая, прям всё что я искал: кнопки на таскбаре не режут глаз своей яркостью, белый шрифт в заголовках — перфекто!
Надеюсь что автор поправит баг с джамплистом в 8.1u1 и сделает активное окно на таскбаре хоть чуть-чуть ярче) Или хотя бы подкинет ссылок на актуальные инструменты (Style Builder?), чтобы можно было поправить самому.

Эта тема была, так сказать, первой пробой пера. Всё, что я хотел сделать с восьмой виндой, я реализовал в Snowy8. Так что уж извиняйте. Ссылки на WSB ищите в сети на американских сайтах.

Great theme!

Just a couple of issues:
  - Windows 8.1 Support (But I can live with the jump list bug)
  - Taskbar button of the active window is not highlighted\different from the other buttons, this is a killer for me :( Any chance of making a version with the active window button highlighted?

Thanks for your work!
