Maybe its just me because I've worked with it quite a bit, but the navigation, how the text is, the overall content area. There is quite a bit of a simular look to it, and I don't think it follows his guarantee of originality. but I'm going to remove my other posts because I'd rather not wreck his thread.
How is it in any way the same? The only alikeness is the gradient of the nav bar, in his its inverted and not centered. In yours ins on top and centered. thats the ONLY likeness. Seriously, there are a lot of templates out there that look even more the same to other templates. Don't get all whiny over one minor detail.
