Description:

This theme is modeled after the BeOS, a Mac variant popular among the digital artist/muscian crowd. It is similar to the BeOS, but not completely accurate, as some "ooh" and "ahhh" features of GTK+ are utilized (such as mouseover highlighting and indicators for pulldowns)

I think that this is a great looking theme. Having used Be I know how it should look and feel. As far as GTK+ goes this is pretty close. I don't think that GTK+ apps can be easily adapted to a true Be style and still work the way we want them to.
I have not seen ANY other Be themes for GTK that are even close to a real Be appearance.

where'd you get it? i seem to recall suse 6.2 using that as the bg image when you just got done configuring xfree via yast. i really liked that bg image and i still do. i've been hard pressed in finding it though because i lost my 6-cd set and i really dont want to dl all 6 cds just to find it...

is there a site that i can dl it from?

What is GTK stuff doing here? Isn't this KDE-look not GNOME-look? anyway it just seems a bit odd

But I do agree with you that there is no need to pile up gtk-themes here.

...to invite somebody to make a GTK+ theme that looks like KDE's default and highcolor-default styles! That way we'd have a more consistent UI. I don't much like importing GTK themes into KDE, because no GTK theme I've ever seen looks anywhere near as good KDE's defaults.

I might try to make a pixmap-based one next summer, but one really needs to do style-engine. Unfortunately, I'm not a programmer.

If one uses both KDE and GTK/GNOME apps, using a GTK pixmap theme is the only way to go, if you want a relatively simple way to theme both KDE and GTK/GNOME apps at the same time.

I for one wouldn't want to be bothered to create two different sets of themes for two toolkits just because the two groups can't be bothered to get along.

This theme is a really (really) poor BeOS Interface Kit lookalike. The only proper way of doing a good BeOS theme is probably by writing a special gtk engine. Fitting pixmaps in default widget dimensions just doesn't cut it, you will simply end up with a crappy, amateurish look.

make your own theme instead of bitching.

Sheesh.

When did BeOS become a "Mac variant?" :)
