Is is themes or skins? Frankly, a skin sounds too informal to me while theme is a common term for a set of templates aka Cotonti/Seditio skin. Cotonti/Seditio theme is basically a (color) scheme.

There isn't much difference for me personally. Themes is more correct, but skins is also OK.

I think it depends on how much work goes into it.

Theme is the skin setup is basic, and you can switch to, let's say, 5 different colors. Skin when the design is heavy, graphical and detailed..

Graphics themes for individual applications are often referred to as skins, and the words are often used equivalently, the primary difference being one of scope.
But there's one really nice thing about themes:

I think we will call them Themes since Siena, because it is more correct and is better for marketing.
