Description:

My first time making an Openbox theme!

Short story:
A "classic" style Windows theme with a modern touch. Like it or not, Windows 98. WILL. LIVE. ON!! >=]

Long story:
I've found most of today's themes are either too dark, too bright, too gaudy and distracting or too plain and boring for my tastes. Windows 98 is what I first geeked out on, and its inoffensive color scheme and non-distracting appearance are comfortable, like an old recliner, or a womb. I've given other themes and UI arrangements their fair shot but in the end they're just novelties for me. The "Classic" look and feel is (in my opinion) the pinnacle of interface greatness, a perfect balance between ease-of-use and aesthetics never since reproduced. Even though I have long since graduated from that archaic and undesirable line of Microsoft operating systems I still find myself preferring the old productivity look more than any of these flashy and futuristic consumer desktops.

This theme is based on Nightfall's spectacular "Open-Redmond" theme which went well with the "Redmond" GTK2 theme I was using... until I discovered "Murrina Redmond" by paraboy. I wanted an upgraded and contemporary looking Openbox theme to bring my whole desktop aesthetic into the new millennium (albeit a decade late), so I tweaked Open-Redmond a bit and came up with "Redmond 2009."

Glorious "Murrina Redmond" GTK2 theme:

tint2 panel configuration:

Original "Open-Redmond" OB theme:

Changelog:

24 Feb 10: Fixed tint2 download link. Sorry folks.

12 Oct 09: Final version (I think). Enjoy!

15 Aug 09: New title bars for menus and windows, new bullet.xpm to match the gtk2 style, some tweaks as suggested by vkramar and other minor adjustments. With this update I feel like this theme has gotten much more attractive, while staying true to its original concept :) Thanks for the downloads everyone! Please drop me a comment or set a rating if you like the theme :)

08 Aug 09: Added a link to my matching tint2rc file for those who want even further consistency in their user interface :)

I have made a few changes (reimplementing the original gradient and making the bar much smaller. Here is the patch:

You've captured the look and feel of Windows 98. I like it, but I have a request. If you can find the time can you create a Windows XP Openbox theme? I'd like to have one like that too and I believe you're the guy to do it. Besides, both IceWM and PekWM have an XP theme available...why not one for Openbox?

Thanks for your creation.

Bob

Thanks, sorry it took so long to reply, I've been PC-less for a while. But I'm back in the mix now and I will certainly fulfill your request with pleasure.
