    New Karmic= EWW!

    I really dont like the overly darkness of the new Karmic beta, totally the wrong direction IMO.
    I preferred the human theme proposed in the Alpha's, and the breathe icon set...
    I hope this wont be the official theme

    The artwork deadline has passed so it will be the theme.

    Don't like it, change it.

    Why do you care? Rarely does anyone use the default theme settings for any Linux distro, Ubuntu included. I say it really doesn't matter. My whole desktop is green right now anyway - neither Jaunty/Intrepid orange nor Karmic's maroon...

    Yeh but now there will be a whole slew of "its too brown" posts.
    Shuttleworth had said he wanted to compete with Apple in terms of looks, making the system overly brown is not the right way to obtain that goal.

    I agree, way too brown.
    Yesterday it worked.
    Today it is not working.
    Windows is like that.

    There are bound to be some that like and some that dislike any given theme, thats just life, and human nature.

    The important thing is that the default is slick, consistent and complete, to me those requirements are far above the actual look. After that, all we can hope is that more people think it is nice than agree with you.

    At the moment, I'm about 50/50 on it, but as I say, individual opinions are pointless, all that matters is the consensus of the majority.

    Don't forget that Apple's all gray - not really the prettiest color in the world. It's a matter of subjectivity. In terms of competition though, people seem to be swayed towards Ubuntu for its features and ease of use - not to mention its ability to be so readily modified.

    Whenever I show it (Ubuntu) off, people are more impressed by OpenOffice, Firefox, ease of installing software, no viruses, etc. I mean, Windows XP was ugly as sin, but did anyone care? No, because it was so darn good (for a Microsoft OS, anyway) that all concerns over its hideous, toybox-looking design were ignored.

    Yeh but the scrollbar in Mac is blue, the scrollbar in Karmic beta is brown.
    The boot up theme is overly dark and brown too.
