Now don't get me wrong, I absolutely love the transparency and shadows, but the brightness.... my God, the brightness... and the horizontal lines! I got so tired of it I had to find a skin that had square window corners, graphite highlights, and a good ol' platinum face. Have any of you guys simply gotten tired of Aqua too? I embraced the GUI with open arms... ever since DP3... but now I'm having definite Platinum withdrawls here. In a pixel environment, there is absolutely nothing cleaner than vertical, horizontal, and perfectly diagonal lines that can look every bit as good even when using nothing more than the system's 256 colors--all of which the Aqua environment violates.
