    It's OK, but I like the default Gutsy one better.

    The wallpaper is really nice, just the right tone of orange.

    I don't like the theme that much, the borders are way too think and the window decorations look a bit stained by the black. Other than those points, this could be a really nice hardy theme

    I like it.
    It's a lot more lively than the plain old brown.
    makes a nice default theme background for a proffesional environment like a school or library. or other public system.
    Fun and functional.

    I chose to have thicker borders because I always find it really hard to resize windows with most themes (borders are too skinny). At the moment they are 5px, but I'll see what its like at 3 or 4 pixels wide.

    Do you mean the panels make the border look stained, or the outlines of the buttons? I've changed the buttons already (well, Im kind of half way through) - I'm experimenting with a white line on the outside, and also a slightly browner colour.

    I've also done a bit of work on the wallpaper.

    Progress is slow - I'm too busy!! I'll post the updates soon.

    i like the wallpaper lots, much better than the skidmark that is gutsy default, the metacity theme is too bright a tone of orange imo too loud.

    So, basically, what do you think?! I've uploaded two versions, a 1280x1024, and a 1440x900 for widescreens.



    and the 1440:

    That's awesome!

    Exactly what I've been waiting for. I'll be looking forward to the completed theme. The wallpaper is on my desktop already. Keep up the great work!

    You should make it a little lighter though.

    Ok, the weekends given me a bit of time to work on this. I went with the suggestions of darkening the title bar slightly, and also decided to do a new version of the buttons - no idea why, an idea just wondered into my head, and I decided to try it out!...



    And with the original buttons:


    And a slight change to the wallpaper - just changed a couple of colours, and the position of a couple of lines.

    Feels almost like you could squish an orange juice out of it .
