Brown again?

First Ubuntu, now this new OS has a "brown" theme by default in the GUI. Is this a new trend? I know, this is probably one of the least important parts of an OS, and I know it can be easily changed to whatever suits the user. I am just curious...I want to know why new OS projects are choosing such a color. Perhaps to be different from everyone else's blues or greys?

As for the distro itself, it looks very promising, and I may just give it a spin soon. Ubuntu is my main *nix desktop and probably will be for a long time, but that is only because I haven't found anything better yet.
