KDE Ars takes a look at the new RC2 release of KDE 4.0. "Transitions are always hard, but when the dust settles, a clean break between versions and an opportunity to introduce some innovative new ideas should lead to a stronger user experience. After years of development, unnecessary cruft builds up and things tend to get disorganized. The KDE 4 transition, though it will definitely be rocky at first, gives developers the ability to cut away the cruft and reorganize code in a manner that makes the whole environment more future-proof and easier to maintain."

Did that. However, with the 2 color shemes I tried (the 2 that don't use unusual colors for widgets), it didn't help.

And the choice of colors isn't the only problem of Oxygen. It's just not sexy. The widgets are dull and boring.

I think again it becomes clear how much a matter of taste this really is. Personally, I've really felt in love with Oxygen. Imho, it's the best looking theme available on the computer desktop right now - even with its still very apparent flaws (contrast being one of them).
