    Here's hoping they're going to surprise us with the "real" wallpaper in between now and final release.

    I'm not saying I love the color-scheme, but I don't dislike it either. I do think they could keep the earthiness and warmth though, and do so without it being so heavy and claustrophobic. Maybe use more neutral shades (I said "more" neutral, as in "to move in the direction of being neutral" not as in "additional").

    In short, keep the colors, but lighten them up a little. Put a little creamer in the coffee, so to speak. I think that would go a long way toward silencing some of the complaints. Some of them...

    Now this is, in my opinion, an example of a well done earth-tone theme. It's a little heavier than I like, personally, but it's clean, polished and modern looking.

    By the way, what exactly do people dislike about the wallpaper? Most posters here just say "Nasty, * is better". I thought it was nice and simple... *shrugs*
    Obviously I can't speak for everyone, but for me it just looks so uninspired and dull compared to the Hardy wallpaper and, while I don't mind brown as a colour, the way it is used here is not nice at all! It is nice and simple, and maybe that is why is has been chosen, but I really think nice and simple can be done better than this!

    Now this is, in my opinion, an example of a well done earth-tone theme. It's a little heavier than I like, personally, but it's clean, polished and modern looking.
    That is very nice, vastly better than the dark theme on the Ibex alphas. Still not sure how I feel about a dark theme compared to a light theme though. Still, even if they just used that great background I would be happy!

    Even Kubuntu has been given a better background! OK it might not be the most exciting thing ever, but at least it is visually pleasing.

    The colours are fine, the theme engine's and icons are not nice. That's why I use an orange Clearlooks (thanks to colour themes).

    Re: Will they change the theme?

    Please, for the love of $deity, change the theme... The particular shade of brown used in Human looks like something I flushed after my last draft beer drinking spree.
    What's wrong with something bold and distinctive, such as Dust? I'm using it now, and while it may be dark, it's readable and looks nice on both my desktop (CRT) and laptop.
