Just a quick note on this theme-

I am currently using the GTK portion, with "Ubux2" window borders and 
the Ubuntu System Panel utility as a menu. When I got your theme 
configured and the window borders to use the colors of the GTK theme, 
with your dark menus and theme touches, it felt to me like "coming home" 
so to speak. I'm attaching a screenshot just for kicks. (Pardon the 
Vista wallpaper. I like it. But I wouldn't run Vista if you paid me.)

In short, great work. Thanks a lot.
