Another theme specification...
Nothing glossy. Well, maybe some little aqua gloss cannot hurt.
It's going to Use the colors of ubuntu logo. Orange and red. Some Orange-Yellow would look nice too.
It should be a bright, easy-on-eyes, exciting theme.
The current ubuntu theme is so depressing. And it is getting more and more depressing. I know ubuntu artwork is different from the rest, but i think the brown theme is not a good choice.
My inspiration is mandriva linux one metisse artwork. It's bright, simple and exciting.
Ubuntu icons are nice, there's no intention here to change them. Or maybe some minor changes.
