I agree with you that it's not much of an issue. Nevertheless, I made a
mockup that attempts to address some of the design issues discussed over the
last few days including the close button. I've added a very subtle X to the
button. I've also added shadows, put check marks in the checkboxes to
distinguish them from the close window button, and made the leaf green so it
looks less like a feather. This is mostly a product of boredom, but I
thought I might as well share it.

Mockup with colorful background:

The background in the last one is a Photoshopped picture of Haiku Valley on
the island of Oahu. I saw a tv show about Interstate H-3 which goes through
Haiku Valley and I thought it would make a cool background for Haiku R1.
