Hi all,

as per subj., discussion is welcome.  :)

This isn't a poll thread because there're too many options - let's wait which ones are the most popular.


Thanks
Vlk

I like the 'macloveros x' that is the one I'm using right now. Not sure if this would be a little misleading as some may think that avast is ok for mac's.

I also like the 'RejZor Sharp' skin, very clear for new users I think.

Edit: Ooops - Since the macloveros x is not a Craftec skin, then RejZor Sharp would be my opton.

Vlk, all of them are pretty good, but to avoid users talking that avast is weird, bloatware appearance, unprofessional and nonsenses like that, please, choose the more 'simple & direct' ones:

1) LiteOn
2) RejZor Sharp
3) Corporate
4) Flat'n'Simple

Blue Expe from Darren Floyd is quite good for this too.
To the Alwil ones, I'll give a chance back for the Glass Plate and Petite.

Edit: My favorite, undoubtly, SZC-KDE  ;)

I'm glad you people like Maclover OSX skin made by RejZor, and I'm very happy I can say I helped RejZor with some graphic work to finish that skin...

...but, question and topic was: Which Craftec's skin would you like to see in avast distribution?

I am not being selfish... if you ask me, I would put at least one skin from each skin designer in standard avast! package, but unfortunately, it would be huge download, and we have to think of those who are still on dial-up...  That's why Vlk asked which one of Craftec's skins... don't you people think I deserved to see one of my skins in standard avast! package... after all those months spent on drawing, making animations, including all kind of special effects and compiling those skins... I don't know, but if you think different, that's fine with me... I just wanna see what people think. That's more important to me than seeing one of my skins in there... Vlk will decide anyway. If you ask me, I am against including any of my skins in standard package if people don't wanna see my skin in there. No hard feelings at all... I'm serious.

I don't wanna influence anyone's opinion, but I think I have right to say which one I like most. I'm still in dilemma in between RejZor-Sharp skin and SZC-KDE. Both, in my opinion, have pretty much professional look, but I would go with SZC-KDE just because it looks professional and in the same time much more sophisticated and polished.

Also, I adore Bionic-avast! skin (I spent much longer time on making this one than on any other skin), but I don't think we should go with that one...

Just my 2 cents here...  ;)

Cheers !

P.S. Thanks Vlk and Alwil Software for making this possible. You guys are amazing !

YOU MAKE MY WORK AND EFFORT MUCH MORE WORTH ! Again, THANK YOU GUYS !!!

I won't mind if you include my skin too hehe ;)
Otherwise i'll give vote for RejZoR-Sharp (very pro looking skin) and latest SZC-KDE (very nice design) although people might think Home Edition works on Linux too :P
Anyway,these two skins are best from SZC imo :)

Which Craftec's skin would you like to see in avast distribution

I thought the title of this Thread was pretty explicit and asked which of Sasha's Skin's should be included.

That gives us a choice of 17 if I counted right.
I personally like the latest one he made. (SZC-KDE) even though sometimes
I go back to my old favorite of Lcars or the one he made to honer the heroes of 9/11.

Again thanks Sasha For all the work you put into the many nice skins and for the nice Avatar I'm using. ;D ;D

Maybe a slight modification of the SZC-KDE skin would be ideal?

I mean, although Craftec wanted to express his inspiration by the KDE theme, I personally wouldn't say the design is "stolen" from KDE (at least my KDE looks quite different).

So we could remove the Linux copyright texts -- I just somehow feel they are superfluous, especially if the skin is to be included in the standard avast distribution.
In fact the Mac-inspired skins also don't have Apple copyrights on them...

Hope you understand what I mean... ;)


Cheers

Perfectly Vlk... just say and I'll change whatever you want. I just put those copyright lines because I don't wanna put you or myself through annoying legal/illegal stuff... I hope you know what I mean.

Just say, and I'll change it and send you new version...

but first... hahaha.. wanna take a look in Genereal Topic forum in about let's say 5-10 minutes ?

You'll love me guys... I promise...

Don't forget to take a look in there...  ;)

OK, new version of SZC-KDE sent to Ondrej (Vlk). No more copyright notes on skin. This way skin looks even better and much more clean... Thanks for suggestion Vlk.

My latest (new) skin release preview is in General Topics Forum, so please everyone take a look if you are interested...  Note: I'm still working on it, so please be patient... It's called avast! Brushed ;)

You can see it here:

My vote would be for either G5 or the new Avast brushed (looks exactly like OS X.2 Jaguar!)
