    What does this color scheme look like to you?

    What does this picture look like to you?
    I'm looking for details on the active window border, inactive window border, the colors of the buttons on the windows(active and inactive), the toolbar, the minimized window's color on the taskbar, the menu's top (where it says nathan-linda) and the menus main color. I am doing this because I made this theme, and people keep telling me that the toolbar is pink. I also want to know if I should get an LCD monitor by now(for correct colors)

    here's what it looks like to me:
    active window border=light silver
    inactive window border=slightly darker silver
    window button color active=light green
    window button color inactive=grayish color
    toolbar = light purple
    minimized window taskbar=light green
    menu top=same as toolbar
    menu main color=black

    UPDATE: as of just now I uploaded my theme (fixed of course) to box-look.org here

    erm, here too! Suddenly the fact so many people argue over the Ubuntu 'brown' makes much more sense to me!

    maybe I should just get a new monitor. And I do think that the ubuntu brown is really ugly. But I guess that's just this monitor

    Perhaps you should adjust the settings for your monitor/graphics card. Gamma and white balance (color temperature) are the usual suspects, as well as chrominance (color saturation).

    Is there an objective difference between 'light purple' and 'pink'? AFAIK both are mixtures of violet and red.
