    Okay, so I like the Zune's interface. It's pretty snazzy and a lot more artistic than the iPod's.

    The picture isn't of the best quality, but you can check the Zune website to get a better look at it. http://www.zune.net/en-US/products/zune80gb/default.htm

    It has no icons but has names in a list and would probably work by scrolling like the same way you do in Music and tap to select the app. And the background would be customizable to whatever you wanted.

    Anyway, if possible (I know this is something completely different and will require more work) it's up to whoever wants to try. I just thought this would be really cool, it's a whole new design and would definitely open up doors to other different possibilities.

    So if anybody out there thinks a theme like this would be awesome, please post here.

    I think that would actually be awesome, although I dispise the zune and make fun of my friend's at every possible opportunity.

    Nice idea. I aint a fan of the colour or font etc but the general design is good. Will be decent to have a theme that is totally different

    well im sure that you could use some files from the older ipod's firmware because that had a scroling, zune-esqe interface.

    although its not EXACTLY the same.

    it would require a full new firmware install like some of the major ipod mods out today, so any mods previously installed would be goene

    what a sucky poll

    "Horrible, I like the icons and I doubt this is possible."

    what about we who think the entire idea is horrible? it may be possible, but i definitely don't like the icons. or the whole idea.

    and how is that more artistic than the ipods? it's just some words on a background

    High five for what? This is a request.

    But yeah, I could probably do this. I just need some screenshots of the Zune interface to work with. It wouldn't be able to scroll up and down though.

    EDIT: Btw if I do end up doing this then I'll most likely make a music player skin and maybe some other apps skins.

    EDIT2: Anyone know what font the Zune uses?
