Works very well.
I won't comment on the look as of yet since you mentioned you would work on them.
I would LOVE if you coul give the buttons a more modern look. Actually, a Metro look would be awesome.
And finally, I like a light theme (i use Metro Light Cyan) so if you could keep the same colors, that would be definetly wicked.
Do all that, and I'll have a x-mas present sent your way
