what i really like about this is:

  it's actually feasible.

  the softness shared across windows, desktop and panels will 'push forward' 
  window contents, including text, acting as a natural focal lens of sorts.
  previously, the sheer density of colour framed the window contents too

  the subtle delimiting line around the window edge 'floats' the window
  itself in a way that is fresh and elegant. nice work.

  i think you've really resolved the menu transparency and gradiant
  problem seen in previous iterations.

  this will also theme really well i think (a steely dark theme would 
  look great and perhaps provide contrast desired by some).

congrats.. from my position this is a winner.

the background image colour could be brought in line with the aforementioned 
reference mockup:

that said, what you have achieved is much 'warmer', if that is at all a

i'm curious to see how this would look with an existant dark background.

what do you intend to do with the buttons? they, i thought, didn't have
such well chosen colours in your previous mockups, reminiscent of

Feliz Navidad,
