Pimp Your IDE: Visual Studio 2010 Themes and Skins

For those who know me, I have always been a HUGE fan of customizing my development environment. Well now with Visual Studio 2010 we can do more than what we could do with VS 2008… I’ve always known that, but now I found the right tool to help me do it.

Visual Studio Color Theme Editor lets you change the colors of VS 2010 and save a set as a “theme”. Here is my first VS 2010 dark theme:

Elite Dark

UPDATE: My initial version had dark shades on the grid, I made them a bit lighter. ZIP file updated.
