Hi, I simply LOVE your theme, I think it's one of the best available! :)

Unfortunately there is a problem with Banshee and your theme. It uses "stars" for rating songs, but these stars cannot be seen in context menu. There can be seen only when I hover them with pointer. Here is screen:

Any idea how to fix it? :)

Vista has Aero glass OS X has aqua.

I feel Ubuntu really needs to go with the wood theme. I think It really ties in well with the animals, nature, free, open.

Come on Ubuntu spend some money on GUI design in fact theres plenty of people here doing it for free.

I see so many great designs passed up for dowdy boring themes.

I mean even XP had 4 themes to choose from

Why not include some of the most popular themes here.
Or hold a contest.

I'm afraid you'll have to care about it for yourself. Anyhow, thanks for your opinion!

I've searched gnome-look vigerously several times.. There are some so-so themes, but none that are really spectacular.

Believe me.. I've got every wood-related theme installed from this site. :)

Thanks for the suggestions though.
