Talk about simple - two colors and a bevel! I didn't want to bother doing anything fancy this time - just basic stuff. Except for the bevels, no 3D effects, no special shapes, no gradients or dropshadows - you get the picture. Oh yeah - no colors either! I did a better job skinning this one as I finally took advantage of stretching and supplied bitmaps for horizontal versions of NextSTART. The screenshot shows NextSTART in both horizontal and vertical, WorkShelf, Clockulator, RainMeter, and QCD Player.
