Awesome, totally want this. Been waiting for a skin based on the Zune look (while keeping the Steam look as well)!
Just ditch the Tribal decoration before release

Thanks everyone. I may release it after all, but not until it's perfect!
The tribal decoration is from the Windows 8 Consumer Preview. If you haven't used it already, it comes with a bunch of different decals for the Start Screen. I'm not sure if I'm allowed to package them with the theme, but I just decided on this one to match the Windows 8 theme I'm using for personal use.
If I do find that I'm allowed to include them there will be several options, one of which would remove them altogether.

Frankly I prefer it with the Windows 8 "Tribal" pattern, otherwise it'd be in danger of looking a tad bland.
Looks awesome! I'm using that the second it's released!
IMO what about having the Steam logo as a background? Something like this:

Yeah! The Steam logo makes perfect sense, you also might want to stick to the gray color scheme instead of the black one (now that I think about it).

I think so too. What are you referring to when you mention the black? The Zune Software?

I meant the black colour-scheme that you used in your Photoshop concept. Black looks good, but it just wouldn't be "steam" anymore.
