I think it's a guessing game:
1: PDA
2: Hair Dryer
3: Buzzsaw
4: Electric Razor
5: Fancy Paperweight
6: Straightrazor
7: Eyes
8: Not gonna go there...
9: Needler from Halo
10: Lightsaber(low on batteries?)
11: Bat-A-Rang
12: A Deer's Last View

Do I win anything if I get them all right?

it's being done right now by someone. I'm sure it'll be submitted to winamp.com once it's completed.

It's definately WindowsXP. The visual style is Smooth Stripes(www.studio-28.tk). The icons are from(www.rad-e8.com). The dockbar is DesktopX using various icons(www.windowsxpstuff.net)

The Winamp3 skin is being worked on and is a port of Apple's Audion Y5.2 face(www.panic.com/audion)

Unhappy Is It just me?

I don't how you did it...but I downloaded the theme and put it in my windows/resorces/themes directory and it didn't work. Also, the icons are only downloadable for OS X. And I went to windowsxpstuff.net but I got lost. I couldn't find anything. Can anyone help me out.

For those themes to work, you'll need to installed StyleXp from www.tgtsoft.com.

For icons..look in the forum "Customizing Windows XP"

No prob. Use this free program to change icons(folders, drives,etc.)http://www.virtualplastic.net/scrow/iphile.html

back on topic, all those skinshots u posted look very nice....but they seem to have a recurring theme

eye candy over usability...

the only thing those skins lack are more buttons but they were designed for Apple's Audion player which had fewer default buttons than Winamp3. Add some more winamp related buttons and the "usability" will rocket up

and if you think those lack usability, i'm afraid to ask what u think of 99% of the skins at winamp.com/skins

Thank you so much...this is awsome.

Personally, I like minimalistic skins. All a good skin needs is the playback buttons, a song ticker and timer, volume, seeker, crossfade, shuffle, and repeat. If you've got all that I think it's fine.
