    New themes for the community themes package in jaunty

    As Dust and New Wave have been transferred to the default installation, the community themes package,which previously had these two themes, is going to be updated with new themes. This message was posted in the ubuntu-art mailing list by Kenneth Wimer:
    Hi all,
    As several have noticed, it is time to update the community themes package.
    Naturally Dust and New Wave need to be replaced as they are now in the default
    installation.
    So the question is: what do you think should be included in the community
    themes package?
    --
    Ken

    What themes would you suggest for inclusion?

    Well... Shiki-Colors, maybe?

    As I remember, this theme wasn't presented in "community-themes" package

    At risk of having my head served back to me on a platter, I'm tempted to suggest... Any theme that "looks more like Windows".

    There. I said it. And not because it's what I want for myself, but because I'm tired of all the wailing and gnashing of teeth about how if Ubuntu "looked more like Windows" how much easier it would be to instantly swing all those Windows users over to our side and that basically everyone who hates Ubuntu now, because the GUI is just soooo incomprehensible in comparison to the Windows GUI, would love it instead.

    Okay, so yes there is a little sarcasm in there; so shoot me, but all joking aside, maybe it's something to think about.

    A Windows theme perhaps isn't that far fetched, KDE does have that Redmond theme, though not sure if it's in KDE 4. And then there's the Mythbuntu theme.

    I don't want to "shoot" you, but I have a question - what do you mean "like Windows"? Something like this?

    Does partiality count?
