I've always been a fan of all the little customization options possible with the Classic themes, notably the 98 PLUS themes. However, there is an issue with ClassicShell and OpenShell when using these themes. The available 9x style Start Buttons all have a solid grey background which looks fine with default colors but looks painfully off when the taskbar color isn't grey.
I fixed this by simply removing the grey elements and making the borders transparent. This'll result in the following (correct) effect:
And ofcourse with the regular colors it'll work fine too.
I've attached the Start Button in the attachments to avoid compression artifacts from image hosting services.
P.S. if anyone is equally in love with the 98 PLUS themes I could consider remaking the correct Start Buttons as the originals in W98 have a different font for the Start text.
Saint Jimmy: hayafumi Not quite, as you'd end up having to replace many a component to get it to function (Explorer is fairly deeply ingrained in Windows's internals), at which point you may as well install 2000 and call it a day.
