Ok, there have been several requests for Growler, which I cannot release. I made another windeco which is heavily inspired by Growler while also different in several ways. Is it too close for release? If anyone thinks this is breaking any licenses let me know and I'll pull it. Made with gimp and decgen *thanks*. Also included is color scheme and it looks best with phlat style I think.

If you explained us why you can't release Growler, maybe we'll be able to answer to you. Is it under a restrictive license? Don't you have the sources? Is there a copyright applying specifically to the look?

Any way, IMHO nothing should prevent you from cloning the look if you redo it from scratch without ripping the graphics of the original. Look at the OSX clones floating around. I'm sure there are a bunch of copyrights related to OSX, but they exist. So...

Growler is a commercial windowblinds theme, so I am sure the license is restrictive. But I hadn't considered the OSX and Windows ports that float around. This window decoration has quite a few changes from growler, you certainly couldn't call it a port. I guess it should be fine. By the way Growler is shown in the screenshot section if anyone wants to see the differences.

Don't worry, Billyboy won't send his army of lawyers to sue you if you make a copy of the look of Growler, even if it's a commercial product. There's already a Vista clone windec but no lawyer at KDE-Look's door.

The worst you risk is to get shot down in flames if you publish one more copy of one more Windblows stuff. That's what I do when I care to. So, you'd better not get too close from Growler's look... "for your own safety". ;-)

That's right, we all want to be completely different and 100% unique like the other thousands of people who are downloading the one of a kind windecos ;P .
