Hey guys, I whipped up a proof of concept theme. If you want to download it you can at: http://www.2shared.com/file/4601511/...e_Skin_NG.html
Note: To apply it, backup your original theme (found at /opt/boxee/skin in Ubuntu, not sure for Windows), and drop this in it.
Also Note: This is just a proof of concept. I am aware it looks bad. :P
