If you refer to the reflection effect, yes it is available in compiz, and you can find reflection images packs that contain the actual aero image.

I tried it but didn't like it too much so I removed it, but it exists. I can upload a screenshot if you want. - Feb 26 2009

Yeah, I know. I don't claim uniqueness or originality, it's more a color consistent version of yet another vista theme.

The first idea was to suggest another color setting for vista themes that would fit the brown human theme.

Now, next thing to do to improve the theme would be to replace these buttons by something decent, I agree.

Thanks anyway ^^ - Feb 26 2009

To make the dock transparent you need compiz (it won't work by right-click -> Properties).

In the "Opacity, Brightness and Saturation" option, tab Opacity, section "Window specific settings", add a filter using "type=Dock" and give an opacity (85 for me). I use "type=Dock | type=Dropdownmenu" to have the same effect on gnome menus, and applets.

Then you can use the "Blur windows" option, set Alpha Blur on, and put "any" in the Alpha blur windows (or at least "type=Dock"). This adds blur to every transparent effect, in particular to your dock.

I'm glad you liked something in my screen shot :), even if that's not the Emerald theme. - Feb 26 2009
