- Clear is meant to push Ubuntu into the future. It considers the best of today's interfaces from computers, phones, and media devices.
- Clear's goal is to create a unified interface experience, seamless, organized, and intuitive.
- I know this theme will take huge technological improvements in Ubuntu's appearance, but this is necessary. Most people, which means most non power-computer users, base their opinion of an OS off its looks. If we make it look professional, along with it already being professional in performance, we would have the total package.

This is the final version of the mockup, now ready to code!
- Currently I am using Myriad Pro, a free but not open source font. I want a font that looks like this, but is open source. Suggestions please!
I like the Ubuntu logo I have here. It was created by grevenlx. http://grevenlx.deviantart.com/art/Ubuntu-Linux-Logo-Icon-18879369
- I still need a really good matching icon set, one that is comparable in functionality and looks to Vista and OS X.
- Intuitive - as in the icons really represent what they are
- Integrated - they match the theme well
- Unified - they match each other
- Not too big, not too small

- I would like to get the person who created the Hardy wallpaper to creat one for Ibex. If you know who this was, let me know in my comment section.
I like this, i think it would look better if the window bar buttons where further to the right.-- UnknownUser
- Good idea. I think it does look better. How close though? All the way against, or just a tad closer? -- Salane89
- Nice mockup.. maybe a little better with thin symbols on the buttons (like "x" for closing, "-" for minimize and so on... but it can be fine without them, too. - Mariux
- Thanks- I put up a new version that solves both of these problems. -- Salane89
The Hardy wallpaper was created here: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Artwork/Incoming/Hardy/Alternate/Fela_Kuti] -Arnout
- It's a nice mockup but, I must honestly say that I'm not too keen on it, in its "functionality" it does seem rather Vista-ish to me, still; i.e. it looks rather nice but does not add much functionality, only changes it. Thus, I would probably prefer the old one to this. --Arand
- Anything specific? I will make a list of improvements in functionality. It would be far superior to the current dying Gtk.
- I like this but i think that you should get some new window bar buttons (is that what those '_' and 'x' buttons on window bars are called?) which will look better with some nice colorful glows because i don't think the glow looks good on these white block ones and also i think that the line (_) window bar button being at the base of the other two buttons spoils the symmetry (would be better half way up (-) ) and personally I'd like to see a break from traditional line square cross window bar buttons altogether.
- This looks pretty great, but looks like it was designed high DPI, how will it work in 1024x768?
Well it was in that, but the fonts did not look to good, so I made it higher resolution. If I were to import this to say inkscape, I could make it that way and the fonts would still be smooth. I still need icons people! -- Salane89 DateTime(2008-05-20T02:58:11Z)
- The mockup was well done, but its too much to look at. I really like the idea with the menu icon, it looks much better than any other I've seen yet.
- It is great! I hope I'll see this theme in Intrepid Ibex! Could you start working on it?
- I really like this design a lot. I'm wondering what happened to the New Clear design and why it was replaced by Clear Finale. I much prefer the former. Was there a reason for the changes you made between the 2? Also, I would recommend decreasing the font size of the username in Clear Finale. With that big of a font, people with long names will look bad. Finally, I like the little 'carrot' connections on the menus for Clear Green and Clear Beta. Is there any reason those were left out of the brown/orange versions? All-in-all, I don't think you should deviate too far from New Clear if possible.
* Its a little rough, but I really like the brown gradient! Also, that 'darker and therefore unselected window' only works if there is less of a contrast to the other windows. To me, the darker window looked selected. Maybe give it less value? -- Brettalton DateTime(2008-06-18T22:07:18Z)
