This is my favorite theme for the Plasma desktop.

What is that window decoration theme shown in the third preview? It looks cool, but I can't find it anywhere.

Some things I've noticed this one day I used the theme:
- The controlbars have black backgrounds, but that makes an to high contrasts of the icons if you have an dark wallpaper. My suggestion would be an transparent dark-grey background instead of an black one.
- The menu shown when clicking on the plasma symbol is to transparent, making it hardly readable on most wallpapers, it should be an black background like the default plasmoid border.
- The progressbars of KNotify have a very low contrast to the environment, an much to low
- The expand icon of the Taskbar is to transparent.

Agree, yes theres alot of tweaking needed to be done. It's basicly just the taskbar and widgets/plasmoids background that has been edited so far.

When I first saw the screenshots I thought it would be to flashy to be usable. But I was wrong, It's just perfect. It totally fits into my desktop :) see http://imagebin.ca/view/OIDB19.html

Glad to hear, :) yea it fits good. I am trying not to overdo the effects but overall this theme looks better on darker backgrounds.

He pretty much summed up my thoughts on it. Freakin' gorgeous work you've done here-- I'm actually gonna be changing my QtCurve theme [from the current one which I put a lot of work into] just to match this. That's saying a lot.

The *only* thing which might be improved upon is the system tray. On thin panels (~36px or less), its background covers up the border that goes along the exterior edge of the panel (e.g: http://imagebin.ca/view/RHwPFe.html). Aside from this tiny detail, perfect. Much gratitude.
