Albook Visual Style for Windows by kool4 :
--------------------------------

Albook VS is a port from mac [originally made by Xiap (www.xiap.net)] to windows by kool4 ( [link])

There are three variants and the third one is a little bit different from the original for mac.
I think it looks more kool.

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

I want to thank Xiap (www.xiap.net) for this awesome theme and letting me create this port .
And i also want to thank castroman for helping me out with the various skin components .

Thanks also goes to my favourite winamp skinner ijaxx for letting us use iTunes mini skin as a base for the winamp .

newavecr for the winamp and objectbar skin.

crni for the base of the objectbar .

Bubbabyte for all the tweaks he has done ..Thanks a lot man !

--------------------------------
How to install/Use :
--------------------------------

If you are a new at using visual styles please read this :

You need to download neowin uxtheme multi-patcher :
[link]

OR

You can download a shareware called Stylexp (www.tgtsoft.com


For the finderexplorer mod search for spybeaks thread over at [link]


***You should arrange for HandelGotD font(for the visual style) and OBHandel font for Objectbar from somewhere.***

--------------------------------
Other stuff :
--------------------------------

Unfortunately there won`t be any shellstyle for this Visual style but i might try to make one after my exams.

There are four substyles in this Visual style.
Two with windows flags , two with apple logos.
There are two different kind of startmenu`s.
