Well that gray background color for the box arts still bothers me. Are there any plans to replace it with something wooden like the game shelf on gog.com, Darkadia, or even the Boxer shelf? Maybe a 256x256 pixel icon just like DOSBox has? None of the frontends have that. I know it's not a big of a deal, it's just a minor cosmetic issue.
Also can I ask what icon pack do you use in the application? From what I can see they are not from the same icon collection. Some are pixelated like the pencil icon whereas the cross icon is sharp and nice. A while ago I have found a really good icon set by Yusuke Kamiyamane called Fugue Icons and that would be ideal for LaunchBox. I know you want to make it as pretty as possible just like Boxer is so I guess this is a must. You have all kinds of icons like folders, disks, floppies, books, boxes, play, crosses and check marks and a lot more goodies which would look really nice with some clever UI. Even if you plan to add some more options later you could still include icons that matches the same design.
The only downside is that has a CC BY 3.0 license and you must provide attribution for instance in your about dialog or readme file. Not a big deal I guess. You have 3,570 icons to choose from. D-Fend Reloaded uses icons from FamFamFam called Silk but that has less icons compared to Fugue.

Please let me know what you think. I'd love to see this frontend being more popular.
