And there wasn't even custom icons. ( Using the old icon set )
Well in fairness, when MM3 was first released we could not put custom icons in a skin, that feature did not come until later. I think at the time, that it was a great choice for default skin. There really was nothing else (there were much fewer skin choices for MM3 than there are now for MM4). And it was a well-designed, original look. Certainly now it has been eclipsed by some of the great things we've seen from DreadM and Eyal (by far the most talented skinners IMO) but again, at the time, it was a brand new look for MM that took it in the right direction.
Well it was a big step re. skinning functionality
But even at that time I already disliked that skin. Mainly the over-sized player and the bad looking buttons.
I don't think it was a wise choice for default skin.
Your Vitreous skin is IMO way more adapted for a default skin as it's closer to the windows OS style.
One thing is sure: Mediamonkey looks and skins have improved since all these years!
And I agree re. DreadM and Eyal. I'm a big fan!
I remember when DreadM came the first time on the forum with his Eclipse skin!
That was a very nice design with a lot of little creative details.
Like the mouse-over controls in the player or the reflection effects on the time counter.
And many other cool skins have followed...
A big thanks to them and all the others who have brought all these skins to the community!!
