    I really would love a skin that doesn't SCREAM "I"M NOT DOING WORK RIGHT NOW" from 30 metres away. I mean, surfing during compiles once in a while is OK, but still...

    I like the purple. I am on my iPhone though. I will have to see what it looks like on a computer.

    Is anybody else having problems? I looked at the different ones and tried to switch back. It gave me an orange box with a blue screen, and everything is a mess, no icons, nothing.

    Is it just me? I'm using Firefox.

    I agree 100%. Do this skin in shades of gray and I'll be all over it.

    Why does every skin on this forum go to 11?

    i love the purple compared to the black bars over orange. though grey would be nice so count me in.

    for those in the know, (i have no clue as i'm not a programmer) how difficult is it to have all these skins? Does it take up lots of programming/resources etc etc?

    Green is my favorite color, but not that green. Garish is definitely the word for it. The purple isn't too bad.

    I'm enjoying the green.

    I find it easier on the eyes than the old yellow.

    The new mobile skin was unreadable on my Treo.

    Purple/blue is nice though.

    I'm sticking with stylish, the new skins are more garish (good word choice) than even the old one.

    I like the old orange skin the best :p

    Too bad there's not a way to allow each user to create their own custom skin :D

    I was pretty attached to the orange, but I am digging the purple.

    Although, to be fair, I would call it blue. :)

    I'd just like to say that the new mobile skin is FANTASTIC on my Blackberry, and something in the old skin triggered some obscure bug that would crash my browser. The new one doesn't do that!

    Consider me thrilled with the mobile skin! Thanks, guys.

    OK, the lack of an edit post link is livable, but there's no way to do a search with the mobile skin. That's a showstopper, IMHO. Seems like it'd be very easy to put at the top of the page, although I suppose it'd also mean a page to select search options (which might not be as easy).
