    There was a download for it on microsoft.com, but now it seems to have disappeared......

    Microsoft New Zealand had it as part of their NZ Desktop Backgrounds pack, but they seem to have pulled it.

    But never fear, it's been mirrored on a few shareware sites:

    I actually use the Tablet PC Energy Blue theme on my other computers, it's a lot nicer that Royale or the standard XP skin. It's part of the Experience Pack I believe, but only installs on the Tablet, so you have to install it, find it, and yank it out to use on other computers Smiley

    It has an ever so slightly different background, though it's hard to tell unless you look at them next to each other.

    They're both included in XPize 3.2

    Download and install XPize 3.2, then download and install XPizeMCE4.x and get the best of both.

    Are you talking about the desktop background or the toolbar? The toolbar has a slightly darker gradient alright but the style that comes with either Tablet PC or Media Centre are just slightly different versions of Royale. Tablet PC is slightly newer but to say one is significantly better than the other is overstating.

    Think Royale / Energy Blue, then make it black with silver highlights (Apple-style silver, not Microsoft-style silver) then remove the start-button text and the text on the right-side of the start-menu.

    Oh, and make the window titlebars shorter and change the font to something more readable.

    Royale is one of the first things I install on any new computer.

    As in "sick == good" or "sick == disgustingly bad"?
