My Media Systems becomes more and more a popular Media-Center solution for Linux. The fact that MMS was listed on the 10th of March 2007 among freshmeat's Top 20 Projects on the Horizon reflects this very well:

The design has been totally changed.
The new theme was created completely from scratch. All icons exist now also as vector graphics. This circumstance doesn't count now, but it opens the possibility to design MMS' look completely scalable in the future. So HDTV with a native resolution with 1920x1080 pixels won't be a problem anymore.
All background images in the different menus does have a symbol on it now, to reflect the menu you are in. Here are some sample screenshots:
