Re: WIP - Fedora 8 theme



I don't know why but your mockups looks for me like Wista ;)

+1 It really is better and to me it resembles Vista too.

i did  wanted to add this in my previous message: "i`m not trying to mimic vista"
i thought it wasn`t needed.. but the taskbar is indeed inspired by XP and Vista but not a copy of xp or vista!!
and i didn`t even add in the glow stuff in the tasks.. if that was in it would have reminded you about vista alot more ;)

and here is a updated view..
changed:
- slightly different taskbar
- other blue colors in the panel
- border arround the window is decreased by 50% (that thick border how it was would probably also remind you of vista)

and here it is again:

Ah! That's better. IMO we should keep the blue color everywhere (it's so
nice). I don't know why but your mockups looks for me like Wista ;)

And others, what do you think? Is it ok? Do we need a new theme for F8?
Why keep the old classic gnome theme? Why not?
