What's wrong with oxygen buttons ?
Since there are recurring complains about how oxygen buttons look like, and requests to make them more beautiful, whereas, on the other hand, both Pinheiro and I are quite happy with them (we are, really), I'd like to gather some more details about what's really wrong with them.
Picture on the top-left shows basically all the buttons that oxygen can draw. I'd like to know what's not right with them. Margins? Shadows? Gradients? The way they look when pressed?
Things like: "they're ugly", and without any constructive idea to counterbalance the statement will be ignored. Also, things like "they should look like plastique" (or any other theme) will not help much either (since this is precisely the point of oxygen, not to look like plastique).
Other than that, if anyone has comments on these, or even better: mockups, feel free.
