I know I shouldn't feed the troll, but...meh, I just woke up, my head aches and I don't feel too happy so what the heck; you know you can change the theme? O_o I hate the default theme myself too, it's downright ugly, but it shouldn't be that hard to download another one from kde-look or something. I don't think chimps would understand the concept but any human being over 12 years old should.

Oh come on, you know better than that.
When the Vista theme is ugly you just need to change it, when it's a Linux theme that's ugly it's a major disaster without salvation.

Well, if it matters so much for you, KDE 4.3 will introduce a new Plasma theme called 'Air'. It will be mostly white/gray. BTW the taskbar isn't black, its transparent, and the color thus depends on your background. Without compositing (and thus without transparency) it is blue.
