This theme is essential to any theme collection, no doubt about it. SmoothStripes combines the cleanness and purity of Aqua with the professional quality and aesthetics of Max Rudberg, resulting in a beautiful addition to anyone's collection that should not be missed.
Unlike Max's other themes, SmoothStripes lack any real extras, as it was designed to match Apple's own desktops and icons. However, it comes with several variations, including versions with sunken widgets, blue widgets, glossy widgets, etc. that each have their own characters, and are each a pleasure to use. SmoothStripes is the next evolution of Aqua, fixing many of the glitches, mistakes, and shortcomings of the current offering from Apple, while improving other satisfactory elements past good, into excellent. (Can anyone say widgets?)
