I like the different colored buttons but they need icons. How can colors be
associated better with windowing functions though? Green doesn't standout in
my mind as a minimize button. Red definitely works for close though.

Also, on the topic of rounded corners (I realize this is a mock up), if
there are to be rounded corners then it's absolutely important that they're
antialiased. If they're not then it's just a big glaring negative mark
against the theme. It's a matter of fit and finish.
