    Personally I find the window buttons to be inconsistent in look and feel to the rest of the theme... actually even in the bar along the top the icon-o-graphy is quite inconsistent in feel.

    While I like the intent behind the rebranding, and much of the thinking... the inconsistencies in the theme make it feel amateurish.

    (Note I'm staying away from the actual look or colour of any particular element, because that is personal and perhaps regional... although it certainly doesn't feel very 2010 in terms of the state of graphic design right now)

          I agree with Kano although I thought they are trying to get away from the brown. Am I wrong? It seems like their main desktop color now is orange?

          But, what is with the purple?!?!? Brown and purple?!? Ack! Orange and purple?!? Ack, again! Who is in charge of those changes?!?

          What is their aversion to....blue, say? Orange and blue... that would go well together, imho. I think a lot of Ubuntu users change their default desktop colors to something else so why are they going with more bad combinations? They just want it to look different than other distros' no matter what?

          I use Ubuntu more nowadays but I have been using Kubuntu previously so I'm used to 'the blue.' I might use Xubuntu though when I eventually install Lucid. 'Not sure yet. I wouldn't keep the Ubuntu defaults, though.....no 'vay...

            The colors in Ubuntu 9.10 are really understated. I don't think anyone could be put off by the amount of brown that's on screen at the moment. It's basically a 10px high bar on a window. The rest is all beige.

              Ok, more screenies and downloads for Karmic users here.

              And I retract my criticism, the new dark theme is absolutely beautiful:

                Correction: the themes are only available for Lucid users. Moreover, the panel icons are rendered at 16px instead of 24px as they should be (it's a big, it will be fixed tomorrow). Finally, the user who took the screenshots has changed the font to something non-default - looks good, though.

                  I think the orange and purple goes great together. Orange and blue though??? Look at the cd cover idea, the orange and purple looks awesome https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Brand2

                    Now it's pink?!? Well, as long as they make it easy to change it or get rid of them.
