    I chose sight. It looks simple, as to not confuse/intimidate someone who plans to learn about open-source software. Also, this sounds great, good luck with the website. I personally, can't produce/develop software at all, maybe this could help.

    Light text on dark background is simply more difficult to read. I know it's fashionable these days, but no matter how many people overuse it it hasn't changed the physiology of the human eye.

    For this and other readability-related reasons, I voted for Sight.

    No offense to the designers of the other themes but, Black Aperture rapes the other ones.

    Glad to be getting these comments. Reading what you guys like and don't like will help me figure out the best way to present the website.

    @Giraffemonster: Thanks for the support. Yeah, I'm not very technical as well. There are lots of good tutorials out there, but I've really had to dig through Google to find them.

    If I can help other Ubuntu users save time, then building this website will be worth it. I'm doing this project not because I'm an expert, but because I need help too.

    This poll is running a lot closer than I thought. Almost evenly matched.

    Is it just me, or is white the color that's associated with design? I'm wondering if it's a Wallpaper magazine thing.

    I want to thank everyone for voting. Your comments and feedback were very helpful. Knowing why you liked a particular theme was invaluable.

    That the results were so close reinforced my initial indecision, all the themes look quite cool.

    Looks like I can't procrastinate any longer . . . time to get down to work on this website. I'll probably come back here to gather more feedback in the future.
