Staff review

Aqua X

I love your eq bars. This is, indeed, a very clean and fresh skin design. Thank you for meeting the basic requirements. I look forward to more submissions in the future.-CO


Pure design...amazing. I been using this one for a long time, still not tired of it ;) - November 27, 2009 by mattiasatlanta

The Best - This is the best skin I have seen. Ever since it's release I have used only this skin.. on all of my systems that have WinAmp installed! Thanks for making such a great skin! I'd like to see colour variations in the future if there aren't any yet! But keep the style!! I love it! - March 12, 2007 by Wolfie Wolf

My All-Time Favorite. - It's the perfect skin. - March 7, 2007 by dr Girlfriend

Excellent!! - There are no words to describe the excellency of this piece of art!! - March 2, 2007 by Marek Opanowicz

marvelous & very clear - I'm found of Mac OS X style and for me this skin is the best one in this category : very "mac" and very clear - January 23, 2007 by remy auclair

Nice, but... - Nice skin, but the green highlighting over selected items is really out of place. - December 5, 2006 by Lake McManus

sweet - ohh soo clean and birght... - October 24, 2006 by mmn aap

Best skin - Very clear and bright, best skin I've got for Winamp! - July 19, 2006 by Garry Turner

i like this one - It's perfect and clear. thanx! - July 12, 2006 by Caudy Caudak

Nice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - Hi, Did you know that your skins are very good? If you don't, try your skin on your Winamp Player. If you don't know where to download it, go to: or if that link doesen't work use this one: Anyway your skin looks like the Apple Macintosh Style. I wonder do you know how to make WindowBlinds Skins? (WindowBlinds is from Stardock.) If you do, make a WindowBlinds Skin like Aqua X to change the Windows GUI. (That's what WindowBlinds does!) Bye! - July 11, 2006 by Misty Chen

love it - One of my best skins. Simplicity wins me over. - July 3, 2006 by Nigel Franco

This is Cool - Clear and easy to see. Great job and look forward to see more of new project from you. - June 8, 2006 by Wenne Foo

windows looking like mac - excellebnt - Im a intel x86 die hard but i *love* macintosh graphics; this skin has just filled in the gap - coz all my windows workstations are skinned as mac - add this to it and looks very very neat - way to go - June 3, 2006 by Jangita Nyagudi

Too small! - It's a brilliant skin, I love all the buttons and bars, etc., it's just too small! Make it a little bigger and it'd be a 5 star :) - May 14, 2006 by Caleb VanWyhe

- May 8, 2006 by Andrew Creamer

hey - I love it - May 6, 2006 by Eric Hocking

Great job - Very nice with the integration, easy on the eyes. Though the colour of selecting an album, song etc. is coloured green which I think is kinda weird. - April 25, 2006 by Wendy Lin

Download - When I rate skins, I'm usually quite harsh and pick out the negatives for people. I rarely give 5 stars. To put things in perspective, this has been my personal skin for over a year. If you haven't already got this, hit the download button now. - April 1, 2006 by Tim E

:? :> - great skin!!!11 :> - March 18, 2006 by Gunch Kps

Fits perfectly to "Flyakite OS X" - This skin fits very well to the "Flyakite OS X" style modifying kit. Thanks. - November 18, 2005 by Paul Popowiczyk

Complaints - Most of the complaints about this skin don't take into account that it's a windows problem not a skin problem. Yes the fonts could be a bit larger, but it is faithful to most aspects of the aqua interface (I use a mac often enough to know and turned the gnome interface into aqua for another user's convenience so I should know what I'm talking about). It's a good skin -- certainly better looking than iTunes. - June 28, 2005 by Atudar Freoda

Very cool skin - This skin is one of the best that i've seen so far. It is functional and beautifull. The aqua theme is worked out perfectly and the lay out is great. The reason for a 4 star rating instead of a 5 star rating is that has several small flaws. - There is no scroll bar in the small main window - The fonts used are not sharp enough - you cannot change the colour of the buttons like in the style xp aqua version. - There is no Media library button in the main window (At least I couldn't find one) - the bar could be a little big bigger to fit the upper bar of a program. Well, to conclude this feedback sandwich I would l like to thank the developer of this skin for this great masterpiece. - May 16, 2005 by Jesse Brandsma

Great - This is a great skin, this was what I was absolutely looking for. now my pc looks all neat and the same. Thanks - May 7, 2005 by Lou Hunt

Greatest skin - This is the greatest skin that I had ever come across. awesome! - May 1, 2005 by Bala Subramanian

Wonderfull - Wonderfull - April 27, 2005 by Juan Linres

Even skinned the media library! - It's hard to find a good classic skin that skins the Media Library... well this does it... and quite well i might add. You can't go wrong with this download. - February 19, 2005 by addy biru

awesome - awesome!!!!! - December 19, 2004 by addy biru

Great Skin - Enhancement Idea - Aqua X is a great skin. I just found it to have a minor flaw (or else I'd have rated it 5 stars! ;) --> When minimizing the main window to the title bar only (either by double clicking in the title bar when maximized or clicking on the orange/yellow button) it doesn't show a micro-progress bar control. Although you can move inside a song (by sliding the mouse between the eject icon & the green button - you see the time display change) I figured it would be nice if you could throw in a micro-version of that nice blue slider because when maximizing the app by double clicking in that zone (since one sees no control there...) you may accidentally go forward or back in the song... Really not big deal but hey, as stated it's only a minor flaw! =P Great job though dude! Multiple thumbs up (that is more than 2 ;) - November 19, 2004 by Tyler Auf_Der_Mauer

Yes - This skin is great. It is the best Mac OS X inspired skin I have seen, and I personally think that it's better than some of the Modern OS X skins. O_O. It is fully skinned, easy to use, and easy on the eyes. It doesn't conquer your eyes and fry your corneas. - November 8, 2004 by the bonehead

Wow - Great skin, my favorite! - September 11, 2004 by Kate Harm

kool skin - it's a clean skin......just great.....perfect my fav skin!!! - July 22, 2004 by ghost boy

Cool - It's cool and soft. Gray Panels, Blue Buttons,and Color Buttons at the corner are so beautiful. But the fonts on the button aren't sharp enough. - June 3, 2004 by Tana Wattanawaroon

Great Skin - I love everything about this skin, definatly my favorite skin in the Computer/OS categorie. All of the windows look absolutly beautiful and they bring out that Mac OS X look that I love. The text is very clear and readable, along with the buttons being easy to find, a very user-friendly design. You can tell Freddy Leitner spent some time on this skin, and his work is very well rewarded. I recommend this skin to everyone, diffenetly one everyone should have. Great job Freddy Leitner, keep up the good work .::/Scott\::. - March 20, 2004 by Scott Mac

Best Aqua Skin! - This is the best Aqua skin out there. One of the best skins available, it's clean, functional, and fun! - October 27, 2003 by Joe Momma

Kick ASS!! - This Rocks!! The Aqua X skin added with the Jaquar OSX Theme makes it look like I'm running a Mac! w00t! - September 20, 2003 by Kenny Gessner

Very Nice - Jorb well done. - August 19, 2003 by William Smithers

Great - Looks so good and you skinned everything. It's easy to look at as well. - July 6, 2003 by Andrew Rouse

The Best - The best Aqua skin of all winamp aqua skins that I've used. Freddy has made the effort to skin all the mini windows as well (i.e. AVS, mini browser,media library etc.). What a professional work. Hope there are more to come from him. - May 12, 2003 by azlan mn

Great - The best skin ive ever seen - February 4, 2003 by Nicolas Odd

THE best - there is absolutely no better skins when it comes to reproducing Mac OSX. This is the most beautiful skin i've ever seen, with NO PROBLEMS like missing buttons or ANYTHING!! DOWNLOAD IT!!!! :) - January 14, 2003 by leigh underwood

Very Nice - This here is a kick ass skin y'all. - December 23, 2002 by danyal ahmed

Best OSX Skin Yet - This skin is the best incarnation of Mac OSX I've ever seen. I've found 5 or 6 OSX attepmts on this site and around the internet, and this one is the winner. Awesome Job! - October 20, 2002 by Chris Connett

Good - Good, but hard to read some of the lettering, and not enough silver in it. - September 24, 2002 by Terry Matthews

Best ever - buuuuurda de arrecho gladymir - August 7, 2002 by Alejandro Graffe

simple and cool - Its a lil' plain but still its pretty also has a very frech and clean look i tottaly love it=D - July 23, 2002 by Adriana Hernadez

Mac on Windows - Except the small fonts that are difficult to read this skin provides much comfort. I think I'll use it for some time. - June 14, 2002 by dArk FORceS

Mhmmm.. ^_^ - Well.. I dont have a Mac. But I sure like this one all the same! Now you must do custom ones for all them other iMac colors too ehe? ^O^` - June 10, 2002 by Andr�as Ohlsson

Wow! - Best Aqua skin out there :D Well done - June 8, 2002 by Si Chun Lam

this skins original creator needs to be knighted - the only reason i havent given this 5 stars is because theres always chance of a better one, but i dont know? its simple yet not a millimetre of this skin is boring, the most effective skin ive downloaded yet!!! - May 5, 2002 by wookie love

I love this - Colours go so well! Very subtle! I love these calm skins, keep up the great work! ;) - April 29, 2002 by Lara Bruce

Aqua on a PC? - If only I could Aquify the rest of my computer.... - April 5, 2002 by Nick Obay

Great! Helps me Cope - This is a great skin and it helps me deal with the time that I am forced to use a PeeCee. - April 4, 2002 by Michael Stearne

Its cool but.. - Aye man, you could have made it more vibrant, then it would like deserve say about 5000000000000^2 stars, but it still rocks. Anyway, its kinda plain, but one can see to the hard work put into it. Look forward to more skins from you... keep up the good wrok. And yes, add about a thousand to the 2... - March 29, 2002 by Adimundi .

Nice skin - Heh heh, take the best and only good part of the Mac (it's Aqua style) and stick it on a PC. Take that, iShit! - March 27, 2002 by Ryan Matthes

Muy lindo - Muy lindo y claro, pero yo no soy Michael. - March 26, 2002 by Michael L

One of the best skins ever!!! - A must-have! It's one of my favorites, and I barely use any other. The design is so fluid and flawless! Keep up the excellent work! - March 13, 2002 by Dray Thiel

Great - Oh.... A bit of Apple on the old PC... :o) - February 23, 2002 by Sarah Edwards

Great Skin - This skin goes nicely with my silver GUI'd OS X wannabe windows XP!!! Keep 'em coming Someone needs to design a Pocket PC compatable skinable version of winamp to replace my ugly proprietary Windows Media Player - February 21, 2002 by Joe C

THE BEST Aqua-like SKIN FOR WinAmp - no doubt ... thanks for your work, man - January 1, 2002 by Jaroslav Z�ruba

D J TRASH - Hey D J, you comment is very stupid, dang can YOU just shut up? Next time, don't post comment when you know you suck and your comments are meaningless =) - November 29, 2001 by Andrzej K.

Awesome work - This is by far one of the, if not the, best Winamp skin I've seen so far...I never used to skin my Winamp cause I couldn't find any skin worth it...You made me change my mind! - October 23, 2001 by Nicolas Roughol

Very nice job! - Good job Freddy! This is the best OS X skin I've seen and I've been using it for a year or so now. Don't let the guys with the bad attitudes bother you. They seem like very ignorant, hateful people anyway. Keep up the good work! - October 11, 2001 by Scott Stoltz

Nice - nice skin what else can i say its looks say it all for me - August 2, 2001 by Stewart Dennis

i love mac! - this is the most matching skin to use when you apply WindowBlinds Aqua theme! - August 2, 2001 by alf lee

Definitely a professional job - Although I'm getting a bit tired of every skinnable app in the world sporting the requisite OSX knockoff I have to admit this one is very well done. The colors are spot on and controls react exactly as they should. Great job. - July 30, 2001 by Jason L.

True OS X for the 1st time in History! - Awesome! Great. Even the minimized windows, and AVS are skinned. This is always compulsory. Then you went and made a skin on one of my fave OSs. You get my vote! - July 30, 2001 by Abhimanyu Ghoshal

Aqua X: the best Aqua skin for WinAmp - Rather than be bored with WinNT's boring interface, I use WindowBlinds to skin the interface, occasionally to look like Apple's Aqua interface. This is the best/most authentic Aqua-like skin of all WinAmp skins as of July 2001. - July 10, 2001 by Wes Macaulay

Beautiful work. - I'm not a big Mac fan but as a GNU/Linux user I've been trying to make my desktop look OSX-like. This skin has contributed nicely to that goal. - May 21, 2001 by Arlo Dogg
