Doesn't give me wood.

As it's built by a fifteen year old - well done but not as good as the old kaleidoscope wooden schemes like Rosewood by Richard Bensam or Woody by Masashi Ichikawa and of course the master of wooden GUI - a guy called Scott Hunter who really owned a solid wood that was more of a forest.

brushed metal tinted brown. yeah... whatever.

people who hate grey in interfaces will love it... but then, they also lack the grasp of the myriad reasons to USE neutral colors in an interface.

Of course, rating anything based merely on aesthetics is the only way this could get the 4-stars it had at the time of this writing... despite the fact there is no aesthetic category... so I counter with a resounding... bleech!

It's kind of like OS X 10.0. It is a cool idea but its not subtle enough. Things are hard to read, icons are hard to recognize, etc...

Apple fixed the 10.0 look with updates in 10.1, 10.2 & again in 10.3 (made aqua buttons less '3D', reduced the opacity of backgrounds, etc...). I'd consider doing the same here.

Definitely a change from al those white and grey themes. Is well done. Good for anyone who likes their rooms and their windows in wood panelling.
