I too think this theme needs to have the other varients and sunken buttons put back in. Then I will want to use it again.

First you removed the sunken buttons, which was the main thing people went to download your themes for, and now you're removing squared edges, when you upgrade you've gotta ADD things, not remove them...
what will be gone at a next upgrade?
I've modded an old version of your theme so i could still have the sunken buttons, but it'd be better if you just brought those back i believe.

Does this really need to be a package instead of a .guikit doc? Semms odd.

Wow I like it. It's a nice continuation of the original "Simple Aqua" theme.

This is my all-time favourite Mac theme - this is how Aqua really should be. I'm really grateful this theme is available and it's free as well, what more do you want.

Whiney people... some of you have no perspective as to how long it takes to iron out the details that Max has worked on, and it's free for pete's sake.

As always Max, keep up the excellent work! (So happy now that sunken buttons are back :-)

Yeah I got to side with John here. Max shouldn't have even started with Smooth Stripes.

There was a theme out there already by Kevin Knopp I believe that looked just like this almost a year before Max came out with his "version"

Come to think of it, most of his themes are copies of other people's themes.

Max, learn some originality. You'll get a bit more respect that way.

You original review was deleted because it sounded invalid. Please provide a screenshot or URL of the previous theme that Max "copied".

What do you mean, "Max, learn some originality. You'll get a bit more respect that way." Max has plenty of originality, which Max pointed out, and I don't know of anyone (excluding you) who doesn't respect Max.
