What I would prefer is brown folders, because there is too much orange
in my desktop and my nautilus.
It is the same of title bars. They were too orange at first, and know
they are brown again. I include a folder example.

About labels, I would prefer small icons to show the type of file:
- a blue W in a blue square for ms word files.
- a green X in a green square for excel.
- a small gull for openoffice files.
- a window logo for samba
- a globe for ftp 
- a key for ssh
- a console for .sh
- a debian icon in the package for .deb.
- a red hat for in the package for .rpm.
- .....

Ubuntu doesn't hide extensions, so you can take a look at it when the
icon is not enough.
