I was asked to start this thread by JIT when he was still considering switching to RR. I had just switched from CF to RR and was encouraging him to do the same (and bring his skin along with him). He was looking for an unbiased opinion about his skin. If any RR user honestly wanted the nexus skin (including myself), they could easily re-create it (even from screen-shots if they were very lazy). SMOP = Simple Matter Of Programming. All it takes is time.
There are many talented skinners in the CF forum (even if they don't ever release their skins [besides JIT]) and I just wanted to see what they could do with an RR Skin or better yet a Flash RR Skin. I wish there were a lot more "professional" looking skins, preferably flash skins like Freedom. Don't get me wrong, there are many "cool" skins from the best of the RR skinners, but Nexus is something you could sell to a non-PC-friendly adult as a real car interface without a lot of show, just a clean looking interface with big easy-to-read buttons.
CF is not fully customizable like RR. You have to use SKINbedder if you want to add buttons to embedded apps. You can not change much about how the media-manager works. It does not support MilkDrop vis ;). For these reasons, I am sticking with RR (until I have time to make my own FE based on SKINbedder and RR combined). So the more good skinners we have on the RR side, the better!
PS to JIT: Sorry man, but that amber/orange one is ugly. I think it's just the colors :). You should make like a black/red one for Audi and VW. Those are much better colors.
After Careful review of the nexus skin I hope it stays far away from RR as possible.
For someone who seems to dislike the skin, you sure spend a lot of time talking about it. Also, get your facts STRAIGHT. No one ever said that this skin would not be released for RR. I sure as hell am not wasting a single extra second with this pointless arguing.

I talk about this skin because I know people that work for toyota / lexus. I've used the lexus software before it was available in their cars. Not sure exactly what facts were not straight in my posts, you failed to mention them. My facts are you copied lexus; then RR user copies lexus and asks you for permission slip to release it and you whine NO! If you read the threads I START you will see many compliments for the help and resources I have givin to others. Maybe you can sign out of the RR thread all together.
