Well i've had some ideas lately, like Turquite, and updating PureWite to make PureWite2.
So i thought, why not just combine the 2 with 2 more ideas into one crazy theme project.
I call it Pure. You can expect many mockups and such sometime within the next week .

Why is it a waste? Pen has always posted threads of the themes that he is going to create.. and he also always finishes them... So i would have to disagree with you Ender.. It's not a waste..


Pen, this could be your best theme yet.. Your skills have grown quite a bit since your first theme.. Ice turned out very well.. Can't wait to see what you have in mind for 2 Pure

penguinn, you're one crazy themeing machine!!! do you sleep sometimes?

but I somehow agree that people should wait just a bit before they start announcing things, maybe 'till they're in the beta stage?

Dave-O is right tho, you always deliver and that's a good thing

So far, Pure looks like ice11 in another color IMHO. But you are indeed talented, so I hope perhaps you develop this theme in a somewhat different direction, not just twice as good but twice as original too, with some clever design winks or whatever.
Keep up the good work

With SS2 coming out next week and the themes related to that, yours are going to have some competition out there. Might be a good time to regroup, see what 2 has to offer you and then come back (knowing you, in a day or two) with something that really rocks and grabs people's attention.

DexTop... I hate all your themes... you suck. And why show previews when a theme isn't even made into a mock up yet... idiot...

Man, this IS a waste of a thread and I'm probably going to get banned or something, but I don't care anymore.

+1 for me... Woo hoo!

Thank you for wasting a post.

When did the people in these forums become so judgmental. This about love dude, love for themes and icons. Bring your hate to some Windoze forum.

Edit: I didn't read the rest of the posts so if someone already covered what a douche-bag ender2002 is then I'm sorry.

i have a few things to say
#1: People will not like me and what I do, and i accept that
#2: I posted mockups at the top [You might reconsider calling me stupid. You don't know how to read yet? You did not reach 1st grade yet i presume?]
#3: Previews of the theme come AFTER mock ups, and mock ups aren't made from themes.... i suppose you are unaware of anything from the theming world
#4: you put the capital in the wrong place for the name, and it even has it at the top of the page since it is the subject..... and my name is andrew [androo] or penguinn for future reference
#5: Did you just write this to get banned? or to see a reaction out of someone? You could've just written "Bush will win", and I garauntee it will start an argument

Wow all this talk is making me want to theme

why not just ignore the people who make stupid comments, and why not just do something more useful, like say..... checkout the push buttons

alright, here's a problem..
i came up with a good idea that only works in cocoa apps, and looks like crap in carbon ones.
notice the titlebar buttons?
Transmit Window Preview

so i suppose ill think of something else that's cool and unique for the titlebar buttons

This is lookin great, very minimalist. I'll admit, I didn't really like the image in the first post, but this thing is lookin better every time I check back.

[edit]androo, I know how you can make those titlebar buttons work, *i think*. Find me on iChat/AIM and I can explain it. My username is in my profile.

Still sucks, but that's just MY opinion... don't let me get you down. Plenty others love your themes... I just think it sucks... that's all. Pure opinion.

why do you think it sucks? if you are not able to figure that out, you shouldn't be on a forum. But that's only my opinion

The first titlebar buttons ar DYNoMITE in my opinion. The second ones are cool, but the first ones are just, like, sooo 'n TIGHT! I really hope you don't give up on that first design...

Okay... Androo, that's enough. You're out of control. This is a safe place with people who love you. Now... step away from the Mac, slowly. Just admit you have a problem, that you can't stop theming (theeming? themeing?) and you've made the first step.

You're making everyone else look BAD, MAN!


To dislike Sinatra is a sign of highly questionable taste. To dislike the Beatles is a serious character flaw.

Sweet! Sunday! DeXtop... this is awsome! I love it.

I see a bug in your screen shot...
In the lower right of your finder window (the resize thingy), it looks like
there are some corners around your circle.

im loving this theme.. i think iv said that enough.
But i think i see another bug, in the top right of your finder.. the button, it looks cut off.

Also, are you going to do any thing that works with SS 2.0? like the tranperency options?
Also now you can customize the background colors (which might look great in a light gray, especialy with the Puft System Icons).

Just my two cents....

I don't know what works with SS 2..... is themepark 2 out yet?
edit: the only thing that is new is just the integration of icons and cursors. i do not make icons, don't expect me to
