I am glad to see some great work coming around from the mockups I have been seeing lately.

Hello is a great start. I have been using it for a few days now and am rather impressed with it.

The only issue I do have is the brightness of the background. I tend to work late at night and when my contacts start shifting, it starts to glare a little. Maybe if we can find a way to make it a subtle tint of the GTK theme color? Not the same color so as it does not just mix in altogether but maybe where it is just a tint above or below it.

Didn't expect someone would use my theme as a basis for his own artwork. Good job, I like it. :)

i am fixate this change this:
distance name="left_width" value="1"
distance name="right_width" value="1"
distance name="bottom_height" value="1"

in "frame_geometry_normal" for this:

distance name="left_width" value="3"
distance name="right_width" value="3"
distance name="bottom_height" value="3"

And i am think about this problem and will be caused by the font size in the title bar.

PD: Sorry for my bad English.

Implements the style shown in the mockups well (same with Gentleman)

I like it too, but I'd say that the theme combines two very different current philosophies: simple - and eyecandy. The buttons are nice eyecandy, but with the rest of the theme being so simple, it looks a little out of place. So maybe gloss up the background - like seen here:

Keep up the good work :)

Hmm, I've managed to combine the two themes now and it actually looks rather well, to me. My only trouble is the fact that I for some odd reason can't get the rounded corners to look right, instead i get a small white triangle to fill the void left by the rounded corner png's - which also goes for yours and a few other recently added themes here. I'll keep working on it, and upload if I get it working.

Alphacube is not glossy either. It's also way to tall and doesn't have a maximized state.
:/

You could have at least removed the old metacity-theme-1.xml~ from gentleman before zipping it and calling it your own.

He said that it's based on Gentleman and that all credits should go to its author. And what is more, your post doesn't seem to make sense, since the license of the Gentleman is GPL and the modified/forked source code of Gentleman metacity theme is here and under the same license.

However, I would encourage artists to use one of CreativeCommons licenses. Especially Attribution-ShareAlike http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/2.5/

I used other GPL'd graphics to create the Gentleman theme, which now Amaury bases his theme on. This is no problem at all. On the contrary, it's a good thing and the very way Free Software works.

I like it, it's clean and neat, but I don't like how the close/min/max buttons look.
