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.

Gray tray icons

Those monochrome icons in the upper panel are just idiotic. They look great until you actually launch something that uses a colored notification icon(skype, transmission, amule, ekiga, pidgin, etc) or you place some launchers in the panel just like everyone has been doing for the last years. Then consistency is gone. Can they provide a monochrome alternative for every icons? Bah

There are a lot of "manly" cool themes, why copying macs?
