I really like this visual style. ...BUT I have two concerns:
1) with my aging eyes, the taskbar font is difficult to read since the font and the taskbar itself are such dark colors. Can I tweak the font and color using Resource Hacker? , and, 2) even tho' the window buttons are cool and maintain your minimalistic theme, it would be faster if they were always visible rather than just while hovering.
All in all tho', I really like your VS. Best regards. ~~
