I like the "Hardy Heron" theme of 8.04 better. The new is more grunge and dark. Hard Heron is a very happy, fun design that really makes me feel welcome when I boot my PC.
I think the orange/brown color scheme in general is great. I've searched tons of modified themes for Ubuntu and GNOME and I just can't find anything I like better. -- Maybe it's all those years of being stuck under the Windows blue scheme that I never thought orange would be the way to go... Guess the MS brainwashing is starting to wear off.
Of course, I am forcing myself to wait for a LTS upgrade before I move on with Ubuntu. I am very, very happy with 8.04 LTS.
Due to brown resolution of desktop seems to be extended.If resolution is 1280*800 , it looks like 1400*868.It is really a magic.
Where is the new theme they promised? Some great community themes and ideas, none of them made it to Intrepid.
