    Asus UMPC Display config -- Did they copy SD?

    Take a look: http://onlyumpc.com/news/asus-r2h-detailed-review/2/
    Looks a lot like the default skin for StreetDeck. Coincidence?

    That doesn't look like SD....
    Yhat looks like a touch-friendly control panel for the UMPC.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    I guess it's just me then. I'm sure there are a tone of other touchscreen programs that have a dark blue background, Darkblue faded to light blue buttons with white text...

    Your right.

    Your right.

    No I don't think that and it's not my point. Is this really worth debating over? I just thought it was an interesting coincidence. The point is that it is a new product and I haven't seen another product that "Looked" like streetdeck.

    Do you have any examples of other software that has that design and color combo or is that just blanket comment?

    Wow two simple and unoriginal black buttons with gloss over the top 1/3rd portion of the bottom. Both are so original. :P

    Who's saying you're stupid?
    We're just disagreeing with your point of view.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
