Haha, jokes on you! That isnt at all what the screenshots are showing. In fact, that theme is the "agualemon" theme for XFCE (which is what I'm using on my main Komodo system)!

You weren't even looking at what was important, and in fact Dagon will completely replace XFCE anyway. That theme and background show MY preferences for UI, not what will be conveyed in the final edition of Dagon. The dock is a test, not part of Komodo. We've never actually claimed that the Dock was going to be part of the UI, and if it is, there will be fundamental changes which make it more attractive and useful for the customers. We have no intention of "copying" Apple -- like Jobs says is so common.
