    Hi Gautam

    Indeed cool themes. I’ve been using Windows 8 since past 10 months but never tried any theme. I’ve only one concern, will using these themes slow down my laptop performance?

    Normally when install any theme on windows it slows down the performance of PC. Lets take example for Window XP, whenever I install “pirate of caribean” or “style XP theme” after few days of installation it reduces the performance of PC. Have you tried these theme?
