GTK+ "GTK+ may be called many things. I would call it 'simple' and sometimes even 'elegant', refering to its foundation of pure, elegant C. But not everyone is compelled to use those terms, using terms like 'clumsy' and 'unwieldy' instead. Yes, there is a lot disagreement. But there's one thing almost everyone would agree to: that GTK+ isn't pretty." This is about to change.

Obviously we all see things differently. I for one don't think GTK is attractive at all. I looked up the ClearLooks theme and don't find it appealing.

This is an old version of Clearlooks. The newer one looks more like this:

Looks better. But still, i like shiny things. Qt/KDE makes a shinier looking product.

Clearlooks has been my default debian theme for a long time, every now and again i feel it looks a bit drab and try something different.

But i always end up going back to clearlooks for the simple reason that it's clean and easy on the eye so that it doesn't distract from the window contents i want to focus on.

Out of all the compiz, metacity, murrine, kde 3/4 related themes i've tried the only one that has lasted longer than a week has been clearlooks.

It may not be flashy enough for some but it is exactly what i want in a desktop theme.
