    XP Media Edition Skin... takers?

    I don't know if you saw this thread: XP Roadrunner Edition, but the guy is working on an "XP Media Edition"-like skin for RoadRunner. A few versions back, I started on a similar skin for CF, but wondered about the color scheme and visibility. That and the changes to CF convinced me to stop.

    Anyone have experience with that color scheme in the car? Is it viewable in our cars in bright sunlight... well... as much as any other?

    Here is a shot of what I thought of back then.



    I'm going to try it for myself and my own application, but before I do, I thought I'd check to see if there's interest in the community-at-large.

    well I like it, I use media center in my car for the radio interface sense the CF plugin will not work with my card and I like the way it looks.

    Thanks for the input.

    I tried adjusting CF's default skin to using the same color scheme as Win ME, just as a test, and it doesn't work so well in sunlight. So this skin project is hereby and officially scrapped.
