because you use a pretty cruddy theme. try the illume images and better themes.
also the qt one looks bad - its a square block - because it isnt using shapes
(which are expensive) also it tends to hide under your finger. if the keyboard
wasnt all black but lets say white or green with a texture and details - u'd
notice the square box.
