I gave you a positive vote, even though I don't think I would ever use it myself.
I like how it is different from most of the themese here. - Nov 19 2006
In fact, for people like my brother, who has some problems with vision, GNOME is sometimes hard to use BECAUSE of it's often muted colors. He uses the Nuvola icons on his GNOME desktop because he can see them better. They stand out.
Go with the blue. They look nicer.
Or, if GNOME doesn't want to be blue, since KDE has really already claimed that space, we need to come up with a color palette that isn't grey on top of grey. - Jan 08 2006
