An African savannah in your winampAn African savannah in your winamp
This skin was my entry for the 1001 Winamp Skins Remix Contest. It is a remix of *db*'s skin Zima
*db*'s skins and mine have something in common: they're more about ideas than about cool graphics, so in this skin I've remixed the idea instead of the graphics (though there are some hints). Mbuga is more a counterpoint and a complement (and a compliment, I hope) to Zima.
P.S. Google says "mbuga" means plains, field, savannah in Swahili.

Staff reviewSummer flavor.
You can remix the winter into summer any time you want, but preferably in the winter.

Well, I'm not going to hide that I'm biased :P - I really like this remix though. I love how you've kept such a similar layout, even though you've turned the subject matter totally upside down. The volume bar eagle, especially with the colour alterations you've made, fits in here really well - and the balance animation is great! I also like the clever little touches, like the shadows, the ear-and-tail twitches, and the buttons at different distances to the observer. I'm not too fond of the text areas or stacks, but I think the blue vis and clutterbar area looks great next to that sky (which looks great of its own accord) - August 9, 2003 by Liana Chu
