    Well, what do you reckon?

    I think we need a new theming Utility for 3.0, as 1.0.x had SummerBoard, then 2.0 had WinterBoard. I think that 3.0 should have a rejuvenation of SummerBoard, the same UI (Maybe) that has the same hook as WinterBoard. Bring back the old SMBPrefs Icon, or even name it "Themes", still keeping the name "SummerBoard" in the /Applications root folder.

    In case that is a little weird, simply let me explain like this. Picture Info.plist in Xcode:

    EXECUTABLE_NAME: SummerBoard

    BUNDLE_DISPLAY_NAME: Themes

    DISPLAY_NAME: Themes

    So, when the App is installed, the name of the App will be SummerBoard, but it could be displayed as "Themes" eliminating the need to say "WinterBoard or SummerBoard" everytime we want to theme.

    Hmmm, I wonder who could do this.......

    I think Winterboard has a very basic UI, something that just looks "Out of Place" in 2.0 and even more so in 3.0.

    SummerBoard's UI in 1.1.x had the feel of a more-complete app....

    I reckon that Winterboard is better and since no one has the source code for SummerBoard, Winterboard will stay.

    I vote for Autumnboard. Sounds way better than Fallboard.

    You know someone would post this:

    Also, what's the point in putting [3.0] in the title if your posting in the 3.0 sub-forum?
    Keep WinterBoard, it has everything covered to do with theming. The developer chooses the name of HIS application. It's not yours.
