[wp-design] Version 8

Right time to tackle the latest version.

Stuff I like:
1. First off I love the white bar you've but right underneath the other 
bars. Very very cool indeed. I was wondering how we might get around that 
successfully. Less is more.
2. I like the use of blue rather than keeping it all shades of gray in the 
rest of the opening and closing tabs.
3. I like what you've done with the time stamp comment as well. Both the 
rounded edge and how the text pops out and the subtle gradient which is 
there as well.

The thing I'm not keen on right now and honestly not sure how to go about it 
is the tabs. The header in general should be something that just defines the 
whole system. Do we do something like Blender and have some sort of image in 
the background to every time a new version comes out? It could be as simple 
as a pattern or whatever? I'm just throwing out thoughts and ideas now. We 
can discard them but it's just to get talking about them to be honest.

I'll agree that some parts of the glass work very well for WP. The 
alternative is what, brushed metal? Liquid? Chrome? Marble? Textured? None 
of them really jumps at me and says yay that's cool, except maybe a subtle 
(very very subtle) chrome,...maybe. Thoughts?
