Really nice skin Gus, you are a professional designer indeed =D
You wanted us to tell what we like and dislike in this skin. Well i love most of the parts
However at the top of the contactlist where *The current user's DisplayPicture is being displayed* I can see that you have changed the frame you used on your previous aMSN Live skin to a computer screen.
Iam not really a big fan of that computer screen and do find it looking better with the frame.

Please Gus dont take this as a complain, you have done a really wonderful job =D
But as you said you wanted our feedback. I would also love to a version which have a mroe sky blue *lighter blue color*
Anyhow good work Gus =D

hehe.. is all Ok Pj Don't be afraid to suggest and tell me what do you think Wink Besides i am testing, nothing is defined yet. And better, all sources of the graphics will be in SVG format, is very easy to change, for example the colors. Is why i choose this format in my designs from now on. Is more editable.

hehe lol... i don't use Windows Vista and none version of "that" propietary stuff.
I use what give me freedom to think, to create... to dream: Free Software and Linux.
My main OS is Kubuntu and the Main tool i use for design is Inkscape, then Gimp.

I don't know when i gonna finish this Skin, because i have all my energy in it. You could see that on my icons (is the first time i design icons, so i will need to improve this work by pratice and testing)
So when i have little free time, i use it for aMSN, specially for design.

i hope to have this done in middle of august or maybe before that, time will tell Smiley

Thanks!!

Yeah, looks nice !!

Gus, I've got a sugg' : the little green/blue/dark men, couldn't you change them? To something never done you know? Not litlle men, as it is in all skins,  but I don't know, esmeralds for example Wink Or a different gem for each status (esmerald=green=online, diamond=white=offline, ruby=red=busy,...)
Don't focus on gems, this is an idea I just get relating to your skin's name, but I think a "big" change in something completely new like this would be great Tongue

My opinion of course (a)

Very Nice idea Wink i will take in Mind. Just i dont want to confuse users if this will be the default skin. But i will design those states to test, don't worry Wink Indeed will be the best choise for the name of the Skin.
Thanks for your interest Cheesy
