kakaroto, thanks for your nice comments!
I didn't know it is possible to hide the menus with CTRL-M, so I did it now, and it looks great
I kept the button bar visible though, as I use it sometimes. There are indeed no transparent images in this skin (maybe only in the display picture mask). Anyway, aMSN is really fast with this one.
The skin in the screenshots is minimalized to death
This is a bit too minimal to be really usable I think...
I put up a slight update (version 1.0.2). This one contains the png's "loading.png" en "nopic.png" which were missing from the first release.
