Here are two more skins, one with a brushed aluminum border and one without the border. The one without the border gives the illusion that the skin is actually sunken into your computer screen, rather than sitting on top of it. It's a great looking little skin (in my opinion).
Blue Window (without border):

Could you please make one without a border and with White and/or silver?
I would like to see how they look.
Thanks,

I spent some time on this. I've come to the same conclusion that I did before when joby_toss wanted to see a more colorless skin. When the skin comes on my screen, it's as if that portion of the monitor just went black & white. It's just lifeless without some color.
In addition, since silver describes a color AND a reflectivity, computer monitors have a really hard time displaying silver. It's the reflections and other subtleties that fool your eyes into thinking you're looking at silver.
I'll take some time trying to create a really lifelike chrome skin. I think that's what you might be looking for. Also, since I'm doing much of this skinning in order to further my Photoshop skills, it'll be fun to try my hand at some chrome.
Nevertheless, here's the borderless blue window with most of its color removed:

Thank you for making the skin.
Since you want to further develop your Photoshop skills, could you make one with a Carbon Fiber texture?
Thanks,

Are you talking about doing the Blue Window skin with a carbon fiber texture? I have a few skins that already have a carbon fiber texture in them if you're not looking specifically for the Blue Window skin with a carbon fiber texture.

Yes, I can change the skin for you, however I don't know exactly what you mean by "one with green old terminal type color". Are you talking about changing the skin's color, or just the font color? If all you want changed is the font color, you can do that yourself by changing the "textcolor", "titletextcolor", and "listtitlecolor" properties inside the .skn file. I use ColorPic, a free and easy to use color picker utility to get the hexadecimal values for my font color selection. It's available here:

If you want me to change an actual skin color, which skin would you like modified, Blue Window, Blue Window With Border, or Silver Window? Maybe posting a photo of what you have in mind would help me out.
Thanks!

Yes i mean the skin, instead of blue i was refering to those old monitors with the dark green color, so instead of blue i was wondering if you could change to dark green, like this:
