Installer
* Installer uses NSIS 2.10, the latest version avaible is 2.11.
* Does not make the Hydrogen shortcut on the startmenu have an icon.

About dialog
* It says "HomePage", a better term would be "Website".
* The background-color of the "About" tab is different from the Authors and License tab. (Inconsistency)
* The text color on the "License" tab is different from the "Authors" and "About" tab. (Inconsistency)
* To add a text saying "Compiled on dec 13 sept 2005" might be a good idea.
* About dialog has a blank/default icon, it should either have none or the H2 one.

Debug
* It has the blank/default icon. It should have either no icon or the H2 one.
* It has a maximize button but it does not work. It is also unnescesary and should be removed.
* If every each row had a different color might be easier to read?
* "Show audio engine info" on the Debug menu should have 3 dots eg. "Show audio engine info..." to indicate a dialog gets spawned.

View menu
* The "Show Sound Library" menu item has capitalized every word, all the other menu entries have not.
* Song editor and sound library have no ALT-hotkey.

Other
* The five blue buttons at the bottom panel are blank. It might would improve usability if they had an icon to symbolize what each button would show/hide.

"The five blue buttons at the bottom panel are blank. It might would improve usability if they had an icon to symbolize what each button would show/hide."

I'll second that. I always find myself just clicking on them randomly until I find the set of windows I was wanting. I really like the idea of them though.
