Ok. I know I've got bad eyes -- but not so bad that I cannot use Plastik at 
the lowest contrast setting -- but here are my comments on the most recent 
version of Oxygen, compiled today, with every setting default. These are the 
problems I have simply seeing and grabbing the widgets with my eyes and my 
(admittedly high-res screen, 129x129 dpi).


I'm not making artistic comments here, nor am I making usability 
pronouncements. I'm just telling you the problems I have when trying to use 
an application I'm very familiar with in the Oxygen style right now.

By contrast, and I should add that, too: the shadowy-border around the edit 
boxes help a lot, the general design of the comboboxes works just fine and 
the scrollbars are great. Again, just for me. Somehow, the fact that I cannot 
see the top half of the radio buttons or the check boxes hampers me more than 
that I cannot see the top of the ordinary push buttons or comboboxes. Maybe 
because there's more text in there.
