Hey peeps,

I started today on a theme I am planning to be releasing under the GPL, given all the talk concerning cpanels new look I have rebuilt the x theme, but borrowed elements from cpanels (frankly horrible) new branding, I have posted up three screen caps, If anyone is interested in this theme I will finish building it, if not i'll scrap it, so opinions please guys.

if you are voting against, please be polite and post why.

To be honest... I'd have to see more to make a decision on it. Give it a little more work, you just started it today, so.... ;)

I was thinking along the lines of keeping it like x, just with an icon change and a few cosmetics tidied up. my customers tend to not like change, so was planning to keep it really subtly different opposed to changing it completely

graphics intensive stuff for later themes ;)

I think it's looking good, but I would say it'd be good to re-organise certain areas while you're doing it (if that's possible), such as the MySQL page (align the DELETE button with the DB name, etc).

I would definitely, 100% use this theme if it just improved upon cPanel's untidiness - the nicer look is second priority for me :)

excellent stuff, can I ask that you compile a list of stuff that pisses you off with x? and i'll try to cure it as best I can with this one.

Thanks for your input :)

Great work, ive been meaning to create a theme myself just never have the time.

The one thing i dont like about it though is the cell backgrounds on the server status page.
