How about themes specially for netbook, what do you guys use? The resolution is okey but if can be tweaked further by themes much better. I attached a snapshot fwiw.

There is a topic talking about a NBR viewtopic.php?f=151&t=21530
There is a lot of people that think there should be.
If you don't want to wait you can do like I did and make your own.
1. Get Linux Mint 8 installed on your netbook.
2. Install all patches.
3. In the Package Manager, install "maximus" the "window-picker-applet" and "netbook-launcher"
4. Move the main panel to the top of the screen.
5. Remove the default task manager, and add the Windows Picker applet to the main bar.
6. Under "Start Up Programs", make sure that Maximus and netbook-launcher will run on start up.
7. Reboot your netbook
Here is a screen shot of my homemade Mint 8 NBR. I love it on my netbook.
