The Windows release is beta anyway.  So it makes no difference how stable it is or is not.   It's known that it's unstable.  That being said, can we please use a theme which matches the desktop instead of allowing them to ignorantly click past and get something that looks like crap?!

it's absolutely and utterly silly to use a theme which doesn't match the existing theme of the OS.  Period.

Hi,

sorry, but it is absolutely utterly silly to make the windows theme default.
It contains several *serious* bugs which makes it general usage problematic: most applications are unusable with it.
Some of these issues are long known, just whining to get it as a default theme won't make it better.

As a daily user of the windows theme, I do know.
