It's an awesome theme.

It's one of the reasons why I get lured back to GNOME so much. Sure it doesn't have the eye candy of KDE or the far superior kioslaves architecture, but the whole interface is so focused on clean usability.

GNOME dialog boxes are a lot clearer -- I rarely find myself accidentally clicking the wrong option. Their style is just simpler to understand -- I was teaching a computer-illiterate family friend how to use Windows XP to test out of an intro computing class, and had my GNOME/Ubuntu laptop out, and he found it significantly easier to get stuff done in GNOME than in Windows XP's "easy to use" interface.

Just to add, nothing against Human. Human is in fact based on an earlier version of Clearlooks, and maintains most of Clearlooks's widgets.

It's just that the brown theme gets dull after a while. Sorry, Ubuntu :)

Metabox. I put up with my least favorite Window manager (Metacity) because of its Metabox window theme. One day I'm going to port that theme to e16 and I'll be free!!!!
