I grabbed a few screenshots of the etienne skins and put them here...
Criticisms I've personally had regarding the Win98 skin, (the one that
appeared quite early - there's a WinXP skin in these grabs, but not
Win98, and I'm not sure who did the Win98 one), was that it didn't
grab the user's personal Windows' colors, and didn't have a standard
Win98 file-requester, but otherwise felt quite good.
I'd say REBOL could get very close to most GUIs, but that it'd be a
lot of work. Skins in my opinion should be totally seperate from the
program, so we as programmers can write our programs using the
default REBOL skin and the user chooses the skins of their choice
One day I guess that skins directory that comes with View will be put
to use. How long away that day is though remains to be seen.
