    I personally dislike the default ubuntu theme. The brown/orange theme is too drab. I prefer the Mac OS look over ubuntu's default theme.

    make your own theme

    it's not hard to add a few colours and a new wallpaper, at least it's personal. i've never just downloaded a theme and used it, probably a bit petty, but i've never liked the idea that someone else could have a desktop that looks exactly like mine.

    Aesthetics wise, and that's exactly what turns me off to it, most people like it and that's great, I'm sure the functionality is great as well. I just can't stand how it's laid out and how it looks.

    Oh, I try. But I look for inspiration as well through already published works.

    My theme has elements from OSX, and Vista, as well as a whole lot of nothing-else-like-it. If I see something I like, I use it, I don't feel the need to slavishly emulate any one OS interface -- or slavishly avoid things that seem to copy another OS.

    That's part of the beauty of what we have here; mix it up and customize!

    How about the default Xubuntu theme on an iMac?
