See attachment for the full desktop view. This is something I put together a couple of months ago during the winter break. Just wanted to create a cohesive Windows environment and avoid clutter. The desktop view includes explorer, ie, and skype.

Stunning work, the colors are amazing and I love the use of white-space:)
Visually, really really strong. From a User Experience perspective, I think there's probably some stuff to be worked on. Nice experiment.
@Remko Dijksma, Thanks.
@Alexander Scott, yeah, there are a few obvious issues that I'd definitely avoid on an actual UI (tinting unfocused windows, the small drag area for ie, and a few other things).
Thanks God for the winter! (:
Yeah, this is at least the sexiest OS I've ever seen.
Microsoft should defnitely see this.
Loved this when I saw it on Verge. Fantastic work - and would be easy enough to change the hue for user preference. I hope Microsoft have been in touch.
Awesome UI if windows implement this one I will start using windows again :) lovely concept and great execution man :)
Incredible desktop! Well done!
Saw this on Verge, too. Hot shit!
Holy shit that's awesome! Maybe Microsoft will take some notes from this... Is this a theme you made for Windows? If so I have to have it!
are you kidding me? mac to win !
great work. outstanding
Great work man!!!
I saw this concept a few months ago and wondered who created it. This is really amazing!
fantastic! please work for Microsoft... we need windows like this!!! :)
puts OSX to shame!
looking great :)
Now this is the Windows id use
I really would love to see this as a usable theme for windows.

@Luke Jones, I think so, but you make a good point. The shadow could be reduced. However, the large padding is necessary for easy mouse dragging. It also gives extra separation/breathing room when windows are next to each other (or are overlayed). Maximized windows wouldn’t have all the padding (kind of like the IE window in the center...which was initially designed at full screen and only later reduced to the smaller state you see in the mockup...but I was too lazy to add the extra padding).
I don’t think it would be possible without heavy modification...and even then the experience wouldn’t be great for various reasons. I think it would have to be native and not a theme.
