I still think this is probably the most inventive thing you've made yet!  Would you be willing to offer a version with a darker color scheme?  Something more in line with the start screen colors?

There is no need for this. You can adjust the color of everything visible on the desktop. Simply rightclick on the item, go to the advanced tab, and choose whatever color you want to have. It is really easy.:)
