Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "Canonical has announced the availability of the first Ubuntu 10.04 beta release. The new version of Ubuntu, codenamed Lucid Lynx, is scheduled to arrive in April. It will be a long-term support release, which means that updates will be available for three years on the desktop and five years on servers. Although the Ubuntu developers have largely focused on boosting stability for this release, they have also added a number of noteworthy new features and applications. One of the most visible changes is the introduction of a new theme - a change that is part of a broader rebranding initiative that aims to update Ubuntu's visual identity." It might just be me, but I find the new theme ghastly. Compare this to this (my desktop). Oh, and Metacity - I can has anti-aliasing?

As you might see from Thom's theme; there is VERY little difference between the new Ubuntu theme and the Shiki theme.
The only differences that are obvious are the window icons, and never mind there placing, they are very ugly and stand out a lot.
For the rest the theme does look nice, though I liked the old theme better.
