One of the nicer advantages Steam has over their console counterparts is the ability to skin the client. If you search for Steam Skins in your favorite search engine you can easily find a few dozen skins out there that change the look and feel of the client. One of the nicer concepts we have seen recently comes from Jay Machalani. The design is clearly a mix of both the current default Steam skin as well as the Windows experience rolled into one. Jay’s concept does a lot to fill in all that extra wasted space currently seen in the client. Maybe one day he can take his idea from concept to actual skin. I would be one of the first to use it.
