NotesBuddy Skin: Whistler...
I got tired of the ugly skins in IBM NotesBuddy so I decided to make my own and dubbed it Whistler:
The checkered pattern is modeled after Trillian Pro. You can download the skin from here.
Also, if you're interested I made a new splashscreen modeled after the Lotus Notes 6.0 one. You can download it from here. Simply replace the existing file in your NotesBuddy installation directory.
