Subject: Re: bundled WPSes => themes?

Re: bundled WPSes => themes?

Very Good, I'd say :-)
I finally got myself a h320 a week ago or two, and it did not take
more than 3 days before I replaced the stock firmware (blue-ish thing)
by a h3mod-skinned one.
I like it a lot. Less colors, personallized.
I've got to admit that I was afraid how things would be looking when
the black/white-rockbox would run on it.
And from what can be seen on the mysticriver-forums these mods are
highly appreciated by a lot of users as well.

regards, lImbus
