Nice - I like the look. I agree with wanting a nice simple clean desktop, can't wait to see the finished product!

You're right about having been done before, but you have definitely made it new and different. Almost a minimialist style but not quite.

I like very much the bushed metal style, but I think this skin still need some improvements:
- The buttons (minimize, maximize, close) are not very good. Try to use some kind of blending (TGA or PNG).
- The taskbar buttons could be also more blend, use more smooth.
- The windows should have a thin border, like a black line.
- The scrollbar are too old fashion, maybe they could be more modern style.

That's everything for now.

Keep the the good work.

This is a good start. Keep at this one. Even though this style has been done, continue to complete it and add your own twists.

Thank you! Actual constructive criticism that I can use (you'd be amazed at how rare that is).

Babyface:
1:I agree, but I'm not much of an artist. I actually have a set of traffic light style buttons, but I wanted to keep the skin consistant. I'll have to look into it.
2:I take it that you prefer the softer style (Start Panel) to the harder edge?
3:I kept debating that too, but I figured that I'd release it and see what everyone said.
4:Do you mean just the arrows or the entire bar? The arrows remind me of my old Mac Plus (which was kind of intentional). I have a set with the softer style ready to go.
