I plan to provide different colour schemes in one of the next releases
and two or three more metacity stylings (the buttons will look
different, but still will have nodoka gradients), until then you can
change the colours in the appearances caplet to your liking (and submit
them to me if you'd like to have them included). ;-)

This is intentional, because if you push the button it will do the
action even on unfocused window - if they had unfocused gradients it
will be confusing.

Yes, otherwise it would not be Nodoka (nodoka is based on a special type
of gradients) ;-)

Heh, this should be rather in a separate thread... Yep, they look quite
good, one thing I don't like is the gnome folder, Mist does nice job in
fixing this, still I like Echo more (and Tango less). I think it's now
more or less about alternative - we have gnome/tango icons with subtle
colours and simple perspectives, then realistically looking shiny Oxygen
(I am not very sure how good are these at smaller sizes) and we are
trying to create something in-between - something with a touch of
reality, vibrant colours, subtle gradients and isometric perspective,
while retaining some compatibility with Gnome (in terms that they can
work quite nice together).
