it looks very nice. I have to agree with Andreas on the scrollbar colors.

Has anyone played with afterstep. It has some nice modifiable menu buttons.
For instance, I chose to have 4 buttons (1 to the left, 3 to the right).
The one to the left brings up a pop-up menu (similar to the square in the 
Squeak menu-bars). The right three are the standard Windows buttons, 
except that maximize only maximizes to (90%x100%). This allows me to 
maximize a window without it being covered up by the wharf and the page 

What I'm trying to advocate is configurability. For instance, I could see 
that in Squeak, I might want minimize to put the minimized window into a 
flap. That way I don't have to worry about finding all the small 
minimized windows under the system browsers.

Or, if I'm using Squeak in Afterstep, I might want the maximize to work 
the same way as my afterstep maximize.

Peace and Luck!
