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.

Not an overhaul

This is not an overhaul at all. It is just a different color scheme with different icons and different border. GNOME still looks like GNOME/GTK. An overhaul means something completely different. An example for this could be that little script that makes GNOME look like XP nearly pixel by pixel similarity.

There is also a way to decrease the size of the gigantic widgets and make them smaller to take less space. If you apply the Redmond theme for instance, all of the buttons take less space and it looks much neater. Sure it's ugly but you get the point.

Ok, it is time to mod me down.
