Hardy is a new Bird
As of today , October the second, Gutsy Gibbon (7.10) is finished as far as art goes. From here on , we begin work on Hardy Heron (8.04). As posted, Hardy will be a LTS release , and with that comes the task of redefining the look of Ubuntu.

This is where you come in.

The big guys on top want to change this. Starting with Hardy , we move to Orange and Black (unofficially) for the default look.

If you want to help us make Hardy look better , please do so. .
