I agree with you Ken,

We must have a theme based on elephant for the walpaper and for the GDM
(with 2 possibilities : the list of users and the other one...),

We must use the brown colors for Ubuntu, and the blue colors for Kubuntu.

For the 2D icones, it will be necessary to change them, for making them more
I think it will be necessary to make 3D icones too.

For Gnome, i think it will be interesting to use *Ubuntu Tweak (
http://ubuntu-tweak.com/ )*
instead of gconf-editor.

For the theme, i think it was necessary to hav the possibility to change all
the colors of all the elements...
But it was necessary to have the possibility to keep the "old themes" we use
actualy in 7.10, and int the precedents...

Others propositions :
I would like that the Logitech camera will be better recognise (the mine
isn't recocnise)
I would like that the dual screen was automaticaly used if there are two
screen (my second screen isn't recocnise automaticaly, i must modify the
xorg.conf and i think it is not normal)

Eventualy, make the 3D by default for the computers able to do it...

Sorry for my verry bad english... i hope you understand me.
