Well.. here it's just brainstorming for the mockups.. the actual
mockups will go in a new thread though a few might land in here as
well just to clear up what i mean (one picture tells more than
thousand words).

To get back on the subject.. what are the exact colours that where
used on the old fedora themes (FC 1 till 4)? and what was the idea
back then behind the "themes"? (it where more boot and login things
then full desktop themes)

Hmm.. to be honest.. i don't like it much.. specially those diagonal
stripes in the progress bars.
And in general it seems to be inspired by KDE 4 ^_^ (specially those
buttons)... I wonder why we don't just use the murrine engine? it's
good and can do everything that nodoka can do plus more (the svn
version). Just make a thread to show off your nodoka engine and i will
post all my critics i have for it ^_^
