If Novell could put together a decent theme to pair with their XGL effects, then it might sell.

1. What is easier than install a new theme?
2. Isn't it nicer to have one really good theme (yes, I consider this theme as very good default, the last thing I would like to see is something photo-ish and flashy like OSX has. Vista fares a much better ride with their default theme, although still to flashy) for default?

You might like Ubutu Human theme. http://perkypants.org/blog/2006/03/08/dancing-for-human-beings/

I don't, it is not simple and descriptive as default Tango.

If such a thing existed, it would. The problem with people, however, is that their human and have preferences. ;)

Words of truth, brother. ;)

But look from a different perspective. More obvious to everybody. This is why I prefer simple and colorsynced themes like Gnome default as default. They are simply much more obvious to Joe User (where granma with bad eyes should know what icons mean. Cartoonish and color limited icons offer best results here). And anyone better than Joe User shouldn't have problem to install theme of his preference.
