Greetings fellow Ubuntuers!
I am set on a journey for making my own ultraminimalistic theme, finally getting it all just the way I want it :)

There is one theme I've seen I'd like to start and toy with some conversions before getting really dirty and spending serious time. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Matrix Compiz hd
Trying to find out which window theme/cursors are used. Thought they would be easy to find with a "matrix" search at a few theme sites. A few hours later I realize I was wrong.. I just find an overwhelmingly amount of worthless ones.

What is the app used to open/minimize the windows by "folding" them? Compiz Fusion?

Ubuntu 7.1 Matrix
Same window theme.. Where is it hiding?!
At 1:43 - separate theme for the music player or does it go along with the base theme?

Matrix linux desktop
Anyone know where to find this whole/window theme? Same luck here.

Any and all helps is as said greatly appreciated!

you can just say you want to hack someones theme as you modify it with GIMP.:))

You find it strange I want to modify an existing theme to try out the feel before I make my own?

Its not like I am going to change the color of a pixel of one image never used and claim it my theme. I just want to toy around for myself with it as I saw a few simliarties to what I had in mind.

Isn't that the point of FOSS? To freely hack what someone else has done to make it better fit your purposes? ...as long as you reintroduce it back into the community...
