I'm tired of all these so-called Aqua themes for Desktops, they're not close! Do people even look at Apple's Aqua? The Aqua theme for Seal sucks ( the button's not even close! ) and the one for Win XP and KDE sucks too.

But, a TRUE Aqua theme would be cool. I like the idea of the menu on top, and the places/styles/colors of the close/min/max buttons.

It's not easy to make a good WinXP skin for Seal2, cause its skinning-abilities are very limited. If the taskbar would be fully skinable it wouldn't be very difficult to make the perfect XP-skin.
If you can do it better, try it!

the only truely good skinning systems i've seen belong to GNOME/GTK, SawMill, and KDE2/3, as for the SEAL2 aqua theme, which one do you mean? the one that comes with SEAL, if thats it then it's my first ever skin and not a lot is actually skinned, on the other hand there's the one pictured below which is not too far of the mark if you ask me. you can download it from http://biggyp.tk if you like.

if you can do better please go ahead, otherwise quit moaning.
