ckit said the default skin should be the one made by the author but I don't agree with that because IMO the author must only be a good coder/programmer he mustn't be a good designer, so it's wrong to think the author should make the default skin.
The default skin should be the better looking one. If the author is a great designer, well great, but if it's not the best one it should definitely not be the default.

I agree with Helmut, also colors of current default skin fits the current icon.

Perhaps the new icon and toolbar (for v2.0) could be like Windows Vista, but orange/red colors should be retained, maybe blue could be added...

I realy don't like current default skin! :?

I always use Mezich skin... If there is no Mezich, I guess I would use Phoenity, Gnome or, than, Default...

Well, you can search for them at settings, but here you have a sample:

BTW ckit, do you ask to Everaldo to put his icons in MSN? I don't have any trouble to give some of my work to you, but Everaldo always ask for a letter first.

Crystal Clear skin looks great (except green buttons, it looks a bit WnXP ;) ), but I don't think it should be the default skin yet. Main xnview icon (it looks Win98 now) and other buttons should be changed / improved first IMO...

Anyway, I like Crystal Clear skin and would like to see it in xnview ASAP.

And it looks good only in XP or newer (32bit version). The 24bit version is just copy of the 32bit version without transparency.

Nevertheless I wouldn't vote Crystal Clear for default.

I just cannot unzip it, if I put the above mentioned password it goes on asking for a password, in all other cases it crashes explorer. Is a plain old zip available? I've never seen a .rar with such problems.

:) Hello !

- I can't unpack that archive, neither in Total Commander (shows an empty content),
nor in WinRar (free registered 3.51 version), I get an error message.
- I tried "avancia" too, same mess…
