I think many developers and wacked out people look to themes and 'skins' as the holy grail. However I must admit I HATE them. I have yet to see a really good 'theme' that wasn't shipped with a product. In fact most themes/skins that ship with produts are ugly as well.

People have, and will delete a product cause it looks ugly. It is a simple fact. You my find it silly well then fine. I said it was silly too. I know many mac users who will and have refused to use mozilla and netscape for an ugly non standard ui. I have been fighting for weeks now try to get my fellow mac users to give mozilla and netscape a try. However everything always ends up at the non standard UI and the ugly themes. It is a fact it takes skill to make a good UI.

Let me restate this one more time. You may think it is silly but it does happen... and happens more than you may care to admit to.

BTW: in my own view all mozilla themes i have seen are ugly, only modern is acceptable.
