Hey so I just got saddled with a new laptop for work and I'm tweaking it and making it my own. I figured I'd try to get an integrated theme going with this color wise and all that so I'm looking for some good skins for winamp3 and Trillian does anyone know of a good skin set that has skins for both apps?

Barring that, what skins are you guys using these days?

As for me, well:

Winamp - "Heart of Steel". Got it from
Windows Media Player - "Dreamcatcher"
Aston Shell - " Escape" with some tweakings
Power Pro - Somewhat modified "KAOS"
Trillian - barely use it anymore (thankyou Miranda), but last time i was using "Giger".
Rainlendar - same as Aston Shell
Soldat - "Predator" interface
Litestep - rearly use it either, as i dont know hwo to configure iot to suit my true need, but i tried that "Sputnik" thing.

Kinwashi has some cool winamp skins. Other than that I usually just check out the winamp site. to tell the truth I haven't checked out skins in quite sometime.

On winXP I haven't bother to do any skinning since I'm only using it for gaming. But I used to use LiteStep and an modified version of its standard skin. Never bothered with a winamp skin. I always kept it minimized so it didn't matter how it looked.

On Linux I'm using a very minimalistick configuration of FVWM. A simple dark background image. No menu bars, only a small digital clock and a virtual desktop pager in the top left corner. Got all programs I would want to use configured to various hotkeys or I can access them through the mouse-menu.

Heh, i actually found about Miranda on the FAQ. And i do like the name, i even want to name of of my daughters (whenever i have one) Miranda, so the name suited perfect for me :P

I do have some slight problems with Miranda, but I dont really mind as i dont check my Ims (other than msn) that often.
