thanks for your reply.
i have seen the black theme, since it was in the top10 of the latest posts in this forum and i like it.
but it differs quite a bit: the vista theme had for example dark grey "headers" of each element, which moved from a dark grey to a bit lighter grey with a color-change in each pixel-row. here there are just 2 colors.
but this theme might be a really good start to modify it towards the old theme.
if i find some free time, i might start it by myself.
in general i would to know if anyone else would like to see that template again, or if i am the only one *g*
