I think votes are valuable. Not for seeing who likes a theme but rather
who hates it. Any overly stylised theme is going to polarise people
into love it/hate it camps which should be avoided at all cost. Ideally
a default theme should not be even noticed by the public - being neutral
and innofensive as possible should be the goal. A perfect demonstration
of this is Apple, where the current theme for OSX is crips, clean,
stylish and probably as neutral as you can get - no loud colours,
drastic layouts or hard edges.
This problem befell the Compiz logo effort. I really hated the new one
and thought the 2nd choice was a much stronger effort. While the second
choice did not elicit an equal poisitive response, it also did not get
the same level of hatred as the 1st choice.
