YEAHHHHHHHHHH!!!!! I’ve been waiting for this. To be honest, I was expecting something red/orange/black from you (haha :P).
But blue. Oh man, BLUE (instantly reminded me of your how i eat my sandwich shot). I think you should use it more – you pull it off so well. Love the close buttons (although I think they could be wider – I’d like to see some more left/right padding on those "x"s).
The 3D effect you have on the windows is really great – it’s something I normally wouldn’t like, but it’s so subtle here and it adds to that “booky” feel.
A few small complaints – an explorer window with icons would’ve been nice, but I know you were probably strapped for time, and it’s not a huge deal that it’s not present here. Secondly, the mail/weather widgets seem out of place. You have such rich details on your window borders and other GUI elements that the flat transparency of them makes them seem boring in comparison. I think even just giving the blue circles a 1px dark blue border like you do on your bookmark doodads would spruce the widgets up nicely.
Overall though this is great. It has that moody “nitzua” feel from your protocol/a million years/noxio.us shots and such great attention to detail (except on those widgets :P).
And yes, more than one screenshot a year would be nice ;)
