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.

It certainly looks a lot better than the old one .. but I don't like the title bar. Other non-GTK themed apps will look very strange with this theme and the close button needs to be on the corner.

I don't think it's GTK that themes them - it's the X window manager in GNOME - Metacity - that's doing it. Which means that any normal X program should get decorated that way.

The menu is not themed by metacity, but GTK, so, yes, it will look strange for non gnome apps
