Microsoft's takes a decidedly dark turn in this black-tinted theme for Windows XP. A bright orange Start box, sharp gradients, and effective gray-on-gray accents make the theme--based on the company's Zune media player--a welcome change from the default blues and greens. We're not especially enamored of the default desktop wallpaper, which lunges away from the cool factor generated by the rest of the theme in favor of cheesiness, but that's an easy enough user customization. The theme looks especially good when coupled with the Firefox Zune theme created by an independent developer.

This official Microsoft theme turns your XP desktop into dark and shiny Zune inspired work space.
Overall, I really like it. I installed it on my 1000HE and it works really well. I didn't like the theme options it came with and I didn't like the gradients on the taskbar and windows since it made it look a little old, but this changed that. Only thing I didn't like was the orange. Made the orange/black combination look like halloween, but it's not too bad since it's the only orange thing there.
