Another WIP sub for pico gray revamped

BE WARNED, I CHANGE MY MIND A LOT SO THIS WILL LIKELY CHANGE

uses Segoe UI font

[01]

* different border and panel

i like 00 better, just seeing if there's any interest in something like this

[02]

* original panel
* rounded diagonal

no worries, i will have several luna-blue sub styles for those who like the gradient start panel

[03]

* early prototype for transparent skins. ill make the start panel, taskbar transparent as well when i finalize everything

(the main reason i went with the tab look was to support transparency)

[04]
* made diagonal less rounded to give the illusion of more whitespace
* start panel transparency

i will not go too crazy on transparency (it's not my thing). i'll provide 80% (shown) and 50% transparency

nice use of transparency. not overly done.

may i suggest increasing opacity of the start panel area just a little, 85-90%? lighter colors are affected more by the background.

transparent black preview soon?

good idea on the start panel. black preview not anytime soon. i need to tweak some buttons, highligths and the awful looking MDI child windows.

yeah, the tab look ties the whole window together in a way the previous look didnt. transparency is very nice too.

Pretty nice this one, I like the border in the top-right corner, you really should extend it to the other versions imo. The start menu is looking good too but I think I prefer it more like the in previous versions or the one in pico-black. Keep up =)

im still playing borders :)

any design choices for luna blue will eventually make their way to p-black and p-ubuntu as well.

I've always liked your WB skins. They're professional quality. If i could be so bold as to suggest a colour, I'd suggest a darker blue in addition to the XP-style blue. Top notch work.

give me the hex or rgb value of blue you like

something around the 0-2-79 rgb area. or if that's too dark for your taste perhaps 8-36-107, which is the selection colour for win2k.

thanks. do you use linux? your skins aren't the usual bling WB skins. they remind of the simple, clean skins on linux except i have to say i find yours to be sharper and cleaner. would love to see ports of these to linux.

can't wait for the black one

i haven't used linux lately. i'm impressed with recent GTK2 themes. linux may be in my future and i would definitely port my stuff over if i can find some good tutorials.

a preview of the black will likely be up in a few hours.
