Default Windows 7 Themes

Installed Windows 7 the other day. Tonight I noticed if you click "personalize/my themes/get more themes online" There are beautiful Ferrari and Porsche themes but no Corvettes. What's up with that?

Sounds like the first of many major flaws coming to light in #7....


Isn't 8 supposed to be lucky?

I'm buying my wife a new laptop for Christmas. It's coming from the Apple store.

Well, the ZR1 is my dream car so I made a ZR1 theme.

I posted it on Rapidshare.

ZR1 Themepack

If anyone knows how to capture sounds to make windows sound like a vette, that would rock.

I developed a Windows 7 corvette theme a couple weeks ago and I've had over 600 downloads thus far. You can get it at
