I commented about this when this idea was somehow born. However, now,
the theme is not so different from the official Ubuntu theme. The
specification restricts it to be about exactly like the official
Ubuntu theme is. The official theme or OranSun theme is not bad,
please don't take me wrong, but the truth is that it is conservative.
personally see no reason for using the OranSun theme since it is about
the same as before and thus it is not what I would
want from an alternative theme since this theme is not "experimental"
but rather quite conservative with its styling etc. If I want the
orange/brown boring thingie, I can always use the standard Human
theme. Of course, because of technical limitations the boxyness of Gtk
themes is still there and the shapes, sizes etc. of the buttons,
close, minimize, maximize widgets etc. is still the same as before and
there are no new concepts, colours, shapes, themes, feelings etc.
introduced on it. I was looking forward for something different which
is as much different than Maemo is from ordinary Gtk-look, but this
theme, despite it is very nice looking one when compared to the
selection of other boxy-looking themes, is still very standard
solution with no fresh breeze in the air. This is fine for most of the
people I think, but some would love to see something completely
