I agree that the search box should be transparent too. I definitely prefer the smaller aero window frame. I think the scroll bars should be smaller/thinner. The system tray arrow would look better if it wasn't white, same with the explorer address bar. I've always liked the squared look, so that's cool. I like where it's going.
Well it's people like you that make dA great, i appreciate you sharing your creations with us all. Thanks for listening and making cool VS's! I'm looking forward to seeing how it turns out..
