    Can i Create theme with Windows 7

    So i am totally new to this but can not find a theme that i am looking for so i figured i would kill a day and attempt to create one myself.
    Can i do it running Windows 7 on my computer?
    I went to this link after it was suggested on another thread:
    http://www.jbthemes.com/AndroidTheme...ng%20Guide.pdf
    but it says in the system requirements that you need Vista or XP.
    ANy help i am nervous doing this but i want to stop being a wuss and start utilizing my phone otherwise i feel like just some poser who got the phone just for the apps. (cough cough i phone users cough)

    I know what you mean.
    I'm running Windows 7 and use VMWare Workstation to boot up Android OS in a VM. This allows me to test my themes before downloading to my phone.

    Here is a link to get you started:
    How to Run Google's Android OS on Your Windows PC - In just a few easy steps - Softpedia

    I'm still testing and don't have a lot of answers.
    If only there were 30 hours in a day I would have this nailed.

    You can purchase VMware WS from VMware or you can download Oracle VM VirtualBox from the link I provided.

    I use VMware since I typically have Ubuntu and XP VM's open on my Windows 7 machine. It's all a matter of choice.

    You can also just boot Android OS from a CD which is also outlined in the above link.

    I'm learning this as we speak so I don't pretend to have all the answers but try and fail is my typical MO. When running a VM, I don't worry to much about the results. It either boots and runs or it crashes and burns.
