O.P. Windows Live Messenger 8 (Metro)?
Hello!:)

Is it possible to create a skin that would emulate Windows Live messenger 8's appearance?

Like this:

Or at least something that would look like it as close as possible.
I'd like to try to do it myself, but is it possible? Or there are limitation in customization?

Thanks! :)

(Disclaimer: I made the skin.) Excuse the screenshot, just set it to the gray colours and it'll look better. :P

But yeah there are a lot of limitations with skinning WLM, you'll never get one that looks identical :P

DeviantArt... most likely a mockup, not anything official or existing. It does look a lot better than what they have currently :).
