OK,

first problem is not a bug - entire theme is pretty OK as design but the
main problem is ..it is black.
This is the ultimate way to become usable by the "normal peoples" - and
that's the point. Ubuntu need to be a distro for all not for "a superior
elite" as many MAC users pretend to be ( an they had their own right to say
that - they had a simple, usable UI, nothing more, nothing less  ). And here
( as a designer ) I'm thinking about peoples on offices, enterprises,
institutions. Dust is nice but please try a ligher gray / blue version like
other nice themes do -  AIR ( for Gnome ),  Chrome-Like, Cromibuntu, Murinne
Frozen, Mithbuntu.

Not all peoples know to change colors - and many of them will not do that
..ever.

my 3,14 cents
