If you like the modern interface of Internet Explorer 9 and 10, you will surely like this shell theme with very similar design features. Worth a shot if you ask me, although the caption buttons should get a revamp.

8. Pical 2.0 – Minimalistic Theme With A Great Twist
Pical 2.0 is another very innoative minimalistic Windows 7 theme. The caption buttons are rather outdated by now, but the taskbar is very cool. Nice theme for customizer who know how to easily change the caption buttons. If you don’t know how to change the captions buttons in Windows 7 yet, I’ll make sure to post a tutorial about it as soon as I have more time for this again.
9. Ice Visual Style Beta: Perfect For Advanced Windows 7 Customizers
Cool Theme for Windows 7 that should turn your desktop into a refreshing cold, icy experience. Great idea, nice shell elements. If you know how to change the Start orb, this theme is perfect for customizers.
10. Top Minimalistic Themes: Simplicity Version 1.5 for Windows 7
Simplicity is one of my favorite minimalistic Windows 7 themes. Oh and the desktop wallpaper speaks the truth: Simplicity is the essence of happiness. Think about it. Minimalists don’t have to think about 1000 things at a time – it simply get’s too confusing if you don’t keep it simple and I personally hate information overload as much as I hate a warm beer. Cheers!
