Hey Ubuntu team, if you want to stay with a dull brown theme as the default, how about working a deal with this guy. Show this to Mark Shuttleworth, guarantee he'll like it.

Looks good also! Guess I'm gonna stay brown now that I have all these choices. The default theme just ticks me off, first impression is WTF is this.

I went out and got the wallpaper & Theme and set it up and I love it. Nice clean look

Yeah, I had a Mac skin for a good while but now I just like Macchiato, so I'm gonna stay with that for a while. Not many people like the default theme, but at least they ship some more decent ones now in 9.04.

I have to agree that they are nice, but I am looking for as much variety as possible. I would love to see some pink ones, some green ones, some blue ones and maybe some gray ones as well.

Yep! You have to add it to your software sources. And theres a jaunty one! It's really nice!

I should just dub you the Macchiato spokesperson. :P

Installed flawlessly on my new Jaunty install. Just looking at the website makes me feel this guy pays a lot of attention to detail. I trusted the install based on what I saw.

I'm gonna keep a bookmark and keep checking back, maybe I'll even start to remember some of my old French lessons.

Thanks, I am a fan. I find that some themes have glitches in them, like checkboxes already checked, or the theme not looking right in some apps. but Macchiato plays nice with just about everything.

Shiki-Colors is still the best desktop-ready theme out there.
