Nice idea for the concept, following the obvious in-trend atm with a
pure, minimalistic look.

Personally, I'm in two minds about it.
My main gripe is with applications that have a darker background, such
as the terminal, it makes the title bar and menus look too big. The SS
on the original theme page [1] shows what I mean well.
I loved the FC5 titlebar as it separated the application from
everything else because the colour was totally different. I wonder if
there was a slightly blue gradient on the title bar or something just
to separate it a bit as well as keeping it in line with the overall FC
colours. I'm currently using KDE with the Polyester theme [2] which
seems, if you like, a less-modern version. Smooth blend [3] I feel is
half-way, just with horrible buttons.
If I have time later today I'll have a fiddle in GIMP.

The window content, however, looks nice. Simple and fitting.
