Yes, I've seen that, though I noticed that this doesn't get followed up
by all applications. I guess these are bugs that we should chart and
report upstream. It would be nice if when you had chosen the large fonts
theme, pages in Firefox would also appear in large print.
When I say that we should perhaps pick one option, it is (a) because of
space constraints on the CD, but also because (b) in the case of the
Live CD we want it to come up when starting X with a sensible default
and not require 5 separate boot options. It's only needed to get you
through the Ubuntu Express install sequence and then you can install
more themes later that suit you better. Also (c) in my opinion it is
more tidy to have one fairly sensible choice than too many.
If there is much difference in usability between black-on-white and
inverse, I would recommend the former as it seems to integrate better
with applications (we should probably do a more thorough investigation
of this on the wiki).
