As I said in the description, I prefer Windows Classic, even though that's not technically a visual style. And yes, I'm using it right now. I can't vote though, because I created the poll.

I like Royale Noir myself, I've just gotten really tired of classic theme over the years and wanted something new for a change.

I don't really prefer any. Unless you're using a 486 there are no performance penalties for using themes, if you turn them off and disable the themes service you might save a few K but that's it. At the moment I am using classic, less bubbly and toolbars take up slightly less space but for the first month of the install I had the XP theme just because I hadn't bothered to turn it off.

XP looks fine in classic but Windows Vista looks so horrible in classic IMO that I never use it. Besides, Aero is actually worth having themes turned on for.
