I was going to respond in more detail about skinning i.t.o usability, that is, where I would like to see buttons, which reduces mouse trawling from one end of the screen to the other. So, it is more on usability than actual skinning.
I am using the Blueu skin by Jaybee (I am not sure). I like the dark colours and also how the submenus (those that expand) look. Also the news channel on the left is good. The navigation buttons was problematic for me though; I did not like the idea of the forward (>) and back (<) buttons being separate from the Continue button. So, I moved them more to the right (see image below). On the original Blueue the > and < are on the extreme left, the Continue button on the extreme right. I would've like the > and > closer to the Continue button, but as it is shown here, it is fine.
Sure, there are skins combining the Continue, > and the < buttons like the Glass.2 skin by XeroX (see below, I tried to make the background grey, which messes the skin up though).
This skin would be ideal, except that it is a white background skin
which isn't good for the eyes. Also I don't like the yellow, and light blue for the news channel. If these colours could be changed, the buttons be moved more centrally, then the Glass.2 could be a winner for me. Still I prefer Blueue, though.
Sorry about the length of this post.
