Riagenic's RentConnect TabControl style (copy)

A friend of mine (who used to do winforms previously) saw the RentConnect application's image and fell in love with the look and feel instantly. Check out the original application image here : http://www.riagenic.com/archives/493


So I started showing how one would go about making such a look and feel in WPF / Silverlight.
First I showed him a metro button (a post on that later). Next I wanted to show him how the Available Tasks might be a styled TabControl / TabItems.

Based on Sacha's work (http://sachabarber.net/?p=322) I came up with this:


For selected Items I also added a scale X transform.
