With the checkmark on they can simply uncheck it.  I haven't had a windows theme based crash in a long time and I too test it on a regular basis.

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.
