Do any of you use the XP Black theme?

I've been trying it out for the last week or so and I can't decide whether I like it or not.

Anybody else using this theme?

Using it now, thanks I've always either used the Silver or Windows Classic themes, the blue "Luna" shit always made me vomit a little any time I saw it.

windows classic. make the scroll bars and caption buttons smaller. use classic start menu. show small icons in start menu. dark blue background. no personalized menu. do not hide inactive icons in the sys tray.

I am. Actually NT4 was what finally got me to ditch DOS and go GUI.

And I did the same with XP, switched to classic. But then I found the silver theme, which was far nicer than the legoland Luna theme, and I liked it aesthetically more than the windows classic. This black one is nice and sleek. Good replacement for the silver. If only they'd ditch the bright/contrasty start button... but at least it's not green.
