Yes, Gef skins for DesktopX are coooool... but I think they could be even cooler (and more people like me would skin more for DX) if the DesktopX developpement wasn't so slooooow.

--- Well Brad - This had to be a tough month for picking a 'TOP' 10. To tell the truth, I really didn't see too much of anything SUPER except for a few really good ideas and designs.And even with that, too many skins had to be tweaked after they left the drawing board.Nothing was perfect 'out of the box'. As they say though - Many are picked but few are chosen.Congrats to those who are in that top 10.

Yes these are all very nice skins but where is A Touch of Glass and/or A Touch of Glass 2? Those were very nice, were they nomintated for top 10 before and is that why they are not there?

I dont know Mr B, "Cha Ninja" is a pretty well done WB "out of the box"

The only issue with Neon that I found (and it really isnt an "issue") was the lack of the wallpaper..easy mistake though with as much work that goes into a WB...

Dark Aqua is a *very cool* skin, but it does have a few issues that need to be looked into/or not...thats up to the author really..I really like the skin, just cant use it when I am doing certain things on my PC..

As for the others I cant comment because I didnt DL them... Just not anything im personally interested in... but if I had to guess I would say that GT3 by Tiggz, & Portal15 by Essorant are probably very well put together WB's, with no issues... Both of those skinners are very good at what they do..

As far as not seeing anything super..I have a theory, LoL... There is such an abundance of skins these days, for anything to be really "Super" and not just "redundant" it's going to take quite a bit of work and imagination to create it...
The new features of WB 5 added some interest to skins, but after a few hundred, the new features became far to common and slightly "unimpressive" when infact if you really compare what is possible today to just a year or two ago..they are quite impressive...

Just my take on the whole "Top 10- skinning thing"..

LoL
