Thanks for the cool themes! The Exon Black theme works fine for me but for some reason the normal Exon theme's scroll bars are messed up. Here are screenshots showing what I mean.

Any idea why this might be happening?
Other than that awesome themes.

Thanks for this awesome theme! I've been using the white version for a long time, and I love the new black version. It looks especially good with the windows drop shadows turned off.

Found some system menus that have black text, hovering entries in task manager, and the Photoshop save for web window is FUBAR:
Beautiful design, I love. There are some things that are bothering me, though. When receiving a message in Skype or Steam for example, the icon on my task bar doesn't go yellow, as it does with other themes. I doesn't change the color at all when receiving a message. That's one thing I'm missing in this theme.  Something else are things like light-grey text on white background or black text on black background. And I don't really like the pages of all my text-editing-programms being black. I hope you're going to change that, if it's possible!^^

Lovely VS, though.

Pretty much reminds me the Visual Studio dark theme :D
Simply awesome.

Very nice VS, nothing to complain. But why the hell does Exon Black paint the sites in Word and Excel in dark black? :O

I was using a dark theme just like this on 8… but my 8 messed up so I switched back to 7 for a little while. I missed it's very clean look. This is just the ticket. Thanks.
