Artist's Note

a few people asked for the vs used in my iso screen, so figured i'd finish it up. it's a mod of the gsm vs.

four shellstyles, including an extended caption bar, and versions with caption text.

open source: port and mod, just give me credits. a wall and winamp skin might come soon.

oops, for the first 15 downloaders, there was a start menu bug. fixed now, though.

Licensing: the artist has specified that ports and mods are allowed.

Great work akka. Very usable. Titlebar especially looks great, although I think I would probably mod it so that brown goes the whole way across. Very classy +love

Ah, I'm so happy you decided to include the full-caption version, since that's the first thing I would have done. Methinks this ought to be a fine jumping-off-point for my next vs. Good job :-D

I'll second kinetx, and pretty much everyone else. Also highlight how soft and clean it feels.

adz_619: you made it seem like you were basically dubbing what was popular now, and what wasn't.

anyway, this is a really sexy skin akka. i can't wait to apply it!

Sweetness! Except the scrollbar arrow would IMO look better as the square up/down arrows from the scrollbar etc...Other than that awesome.

Love this theme, but please anyone do some proper icons (dock)...The trees are not that exciting.
