Im pretty excited about this theme. In particular I like how the brushed background is coming along. Any thoughts on this theme?

I personally much prefer TiBook2 over TiSkin... It's just so charming with the shiny black, those little orange highlights in the scrollbars, the way the titlebar kinda gives that illusion that its left and right edges aren't perfectly straight, more like an isosceles trapezoid... And it's also extremely consistent. Great "material," and great use of it.

Ya, I really like how the widgets are so big. They go very well with the theme (dont kill me bluevertical ). This theme has somewhat of a natural shine, whereas I think TiSkin has the lines and sharper shine. Maybe TiSkin is a different material?

I can tell you with 100% assurance that they're both made of the same material... pixels

No, you do not understand my statement. I mean that there are different materials that are used in the graphical aspect of themeing. For example, plastic is used for Safaris default buttons, brushed metal is the brushed metal in an Aqua Finder, etc. In your cases, Titanium is the titanium aspect of your theme. Each of you can represent this material differently, like I see yours as a glassed over Titanium, whereas XiAPs theme is more of a subtle sheen. BBX can probably explain this better than I can. His Omega is supposed to be some polycarbonate treated in something I dont remember, he can tell you.
