Skin Name: Scrootwing

Scrootwing Screenshot

Skin Author: PixelPirate

Description: Quite different than what I would usually do, trying to make it unique. The titlebar resembles a clamp, typically seen as an icon for compression software. So I thought I'd add that to the skin, to underline the purpose of the software. The clamp squeezes the titlebar buttons. The name is simply an americanized version of the danish word for clamp.
