    Longhorn MSN skin

    Just so there is no confusion: This skin is NOT for MSN Messenger 7 BETA which was released lately. It will be updated for 7 once MSN Messenger 7 becomes official (Febraury 2005)

    Themes
    Aero Theme: based on Aero UI by Windows X. You'll see a contrast between black and white since the sign-in window and contact list are based on Aero UI Day where as the conversation window is based on Aero UI Night. Toolbar icons are inspired from Longhorn icons by Cubiz and some other Y'z Toolbar themes (sorry but I can't remember their authors).
    Inspirat Theme: done with permission from stefanka to match his famous Inspirat visual style. A dark-grey/silvery theme with toolbar icons that has a little of both longhorn and inspirat.

    Download from rolandunderg.net

    Install Notes
    Make sure you have an original unmodified latest 6.2 version of MSN Messenger preinstalled before you install the skin.

    just execute the downloaded file.
    in there you can select between 2 skins.
    choose your favourite one
