+1 for reverting to Plastik.  I installed before flight 5, and haven't seen
that new theme before that screenshot. (I don't see it as a choice even
actually.. though I have all the updates) and I don't like that new look and
agree with all the points made about it.

+1 for reverting to the previous usplash theme.  The blue is too intense in
the new usplash theme too and overall the new theme just looks very rough,
the old one was better.
All these new intense blues don't match
with the other nice peaceful light blues of KDE and Kubuntu and artwork.

The new kbfx looks cool, but I don't think it should be included as default,
especially this late in development.  It would be nice to have it in
universe though.
