>this is exactly what i would expect from mozilla: a complete waste of everyone's time.

Tell that to the winners of the contest.

Seriously, why is Neoplanet so popular if everything has to blend in with the OS all of the time? Although I agree that Mozilla should default to the Classic skin, skinning is a good thing, because not everyone agrees with you. Heck, we get it for free with XUL, so why not?
