It looks almost the same, but darker in general (just the wallpapers).

Alternatively, if you've upgraded instead of doing a clean install, it keeps your previous theme, so you won't be able to see the new theme. Go to your Appearances settings to choose the new themes.

Well the changes with Intrepid is not only on the Themes but also on the features.

The themes are almost the same but for Hardy the color was like orange and in Intrepid its brown. Incase you want more themes then you ca go to www.gnome-look.com

There were some great community themes made for this release. Download the community-themes package from the Synaptic package manager and then check out the Dust and New Wave themes.

The "Enter your Password to Perform Administrative Tasks" screen is a lot darker in Intrepid compared to other versions. There is also a new "dark room" theme, which I personally do not like, but you might like to try itĚ

Dust theme for me blows any other out the water.. And i hate the dark human theme, i expected better. Default human is fine however, slightly darker than before, much better. They need to work with the Dust guy and get it made default :)
