Yes, it looks great! It's not the dull original Steam look, and it's not the fat and clumsy look, it's just modern, slim and good looking. :)

Sure, the simpler the better...more ZEN.....:)
Anyway it's not a big change from the old design....

I'm on my computer at work so haven't checked it out yet, is there a pure black and white skin ? i'd like to see that, with just a tad of grey.

oooh, aren't we all lucky people, remember to say 'thank you' to the nice steam men. Hmm, it's alright, the 'ice' theme is quite pleasant :)

Just curious, is there anybody in here who has found a way to block the shameless advertising of his steam client?
When I choose games I do NOT want to see what's in their store over & over & over again.
So , is it possible to force steam to show what I want ?
The rest of steam is very nice IMO.

starting steam goes hand in hand with an internet explorer pop up ad. is that normal?

Text is too thin and the text size for some reason was decreased. Gives me a headache just looking at it (oh I can read the text, its just somehow the combination of the color scheme, text font, and "flatness" makes my head spin). I tried the other skins to see if it would increase the text size (or at least make it more than 2 pixels wide), sadly none do. Even if they did I don't think I could handle the terrible contrast of the text compared to the backround. Only the default skin was bearable for me, though fortunately older steam skins still work. Obviously they are a little glitchy, but anything to get it back to the way it was. I don't know why Valve didn't include a way to use the old default steam skin, I don't care if it didn't look professional or whatever the hell else was the problem, it worked fine and it didn't make me cross-eyed when looking at it.

What are you talking about? You mean you click games tab and it shows the store?
But if you're talking about the window it displays when it starts, you can change it.

File -> Settings -> Interface -> Favourite window
