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 is not only *unstable* (as it makes your application crash after long usage compared to the standard theme which is instead very stable) but it is *unusable* meaning standard controls fail to work correctly, most notably pop up buttons and menus. Added to that, the general in-window menu problems with documents remains. Summed up, as much as it now looks good on windows 7 and windoes 8 in screenshots (with my last native patches to support the manifest and init code) it can't be used for any application, even quite simple.

Sad truth, but it is the truth.
Nothing that can't be fixed either of course
