For starters, I love how the Metacity Gradient is not so deep, but still nice and roundish.

The close/max/min buttons are much better looking (Active & Inactive), then the ones found in Glider & Industrial. It looks like allot more attention to detail was given to them.

As for what others have been saying, i am sorry I just can not see how anyone could see this Metacity as a rip off? If anything, a huge improvement on the original industrial style.

Please if you don't have anything positive or constructive to say, then don't say anything at all...

It was derived from the Indubstrial theme which was derived from the Novel Industrial theme.

I did some changes to the restore, minimize, maximize, and close buttons. I also changed the way the window looks when its maximized.

I also fixed a few glitches, missing pixels, missing lines, redundant black pixels and other more.

I believe that Smooth GNOME is a dervitive of the original novell industrial theme. You can find it named Glider on Gnome 2.8. I'd guess this because they look exactly the same.

This theme is actually the exact clone of the smooth GNOME windows border theme found on art.gnome.org

Can somebody confirm this ?

Thank you, I was waiting for a good metacity theme for a long time, one that is not specific to the gtk theme. Assassin is awsome. I love it.

Wow, thanks! I really didn't think anyone would like it. It's not as fancy as the others.
