Modernization of SecureCRT's UI


As a software developer myself (Video Game Industry), I have strong believes that presentation goes a long way. Now, when I used to do Linux software development, I lived in SecureCRT 8+ hours a day. I don't use as much now, rather 1-2 hours a day.

As a number of people have mentioned over the years, SecureCRT has a somewhat dated interface. I know that many of you will agree with me that the presentation of this app doesn't really matter, and it's the functionality that does. However, presentation and display does weigh in somewhat.

Personally, I think the MS ribbon interface is amazing and many non-Microsoft software apps have picked this up and received critical acclaim for it. (Raxco's PerfectDisk is one that comes to mind.) However, even if we couldn't get a ribbon look, how many of you would agree that new/updated icons and library support for Windows Vista and Windows 7 is due?

Again, functionality-wise SecureCRT is killer and there isn't any app available that does what it does, as easy and pleasant as it does it. However, it'd be great to have a more pleasing look.

What do you all think?
