Very nice looking skin and I must say, it is indeed very soothing for the eyes, I could feel it just looking at the screenshot. Great job

Using WB5 enhanced now, Septimus, and still no glass effect. Looks great on the screenshot but still a very nice skin! Thanks for the comment, but if I'm missing something don't know what it is! lol

repost ( lost in the meltdown )

great scheme of blue, good unique design! however i think a couple things are working against your goal of making something easy on the eyes.

The glass version feels choppy, too much contrast. Its mostly those borders, i think they don't sit well with the flat blues. I much prefer the 'normal' style - no borders to get in the way and thus you don't have that extra light color to conflict with your darker content colors. Its more fluid.

On normal, i especially like how you gave shape to the toolbar (something that is lost on glass) but where it meets the scroll bar and task pane you have what appear to be holes from the negative space and these read as a mistake. what if you put more space between to let the toolbar shape stand out?

On both skins, your gray toolbar and taskbar text doesn't stand out so well from the blue - especially in high res. I'd recommend making this text black. it stands out much better and keeps in scheme with your color.

overall i like it, keep it up!

someone had posted that this looked like dreamland.... i think not, so many differences especially the corners, scrollbars, and toolbar.

andrew the bubble wallpaper is one of Vlad's and its in the wallpaper library here on WC.

I only see WB4.6 for download and 4.x for sale on the stardock site. Where do you get WB5?

Not sure if this is just me or what, but I get an error message when going to control panel and trying to view it in categoy view. The messages reads: parse error '<' at line 1. I don't get this error with any other skin except yours.
