I was working in Calc and I noticed that the tabs bit in the left bottom still looks like 1990s stuff, with pixelated lines and such.

Not a technical problem, but not in keeping with the times now that everything else is aquafied and the icons are so pretty.

At least the black line at the top could be a bit more gray, in keeping with the buttons or the scrollbar next to it. I don't know how much work it would be to make the tabs look nicer, I dimly recall you left it after the aquafication because was annoying. You might be able to use the tabs from the preferences dialogues, though that would probably use more space.

Anyway, not a bug, but a piece of polish. I see no reason to hurry.

We have no plans to use native tabs for the Calc "sheet tabs". Calc sheet tabs have several features that are not available in native tabs such as setting a custom tab color and being drawn with a "hanging tab" style. Native tabs only draw with a system color and they can only be drawn with a single style.

Also, we have more than enough work to do so tweaking the OpenOffice Calc sheet tab drawing code is not something we will be doing in the near future.
