Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Canonical has unveiled a complete branding overhaul, redesigning everything from the Ubuntu website to its logos and marketing material. However, what interests me more are the new Gtk+ themes, and even then, I'm not interested in the colour choices and the like. No - what stood out to me right away was not the theme itself - but the placement of the titlebar widgets.

Mixed bag

It's a mixed bag if you ask me. The "branding" and colour choices are great. So is the new bootsplash.
The new gtk is far from "great" IMHO (It's less defined, and more chaotic than the old humanity). I would have kept the old human gtk and applied the new colors to that instead.
The new metacity was quite ugly IMHO. Bleh. I hope they at least do a poll or something, so that people get to voice their opinion about the theme change.
