But wait then again the Rapier menu looks just like the Wordpress skin used on the XBMC website. Now who stole from whom? In my opinion it is almost impossible nowadays to create a skin that is completely different from any other skin. E.g. every wall view looks (in some way) the same because the basic idea of the view is the same. No need to discuss who "stole" what from where.
Well....technically I created the initial design for Rapier, back when it was called Reverence ; but you're right, the inspiration for my breadcrumbs did come from other sources.
Which is exactly what I said from the beginning, and there's absolutely nothing wrong with drawing inspiration from other designs. Not every design can be groundbreaking; sometimes its the incremental designs that build upon previous ones that are really polished and usable.
