Dark menus with white backgrounds is not a dark theme!  ;)

To my knowledge no Linux distribution ever has shipped a professional-looking 
dark theme.  I've cobbled together several over the years including the one I'm 
using now, but it always a pain in the ass as most you'll find online are 
cartoonish monstrosities.

The situation was much better in the old days, Windows 95-XP allowed you to just 
set colors you liked on the standard theme and everything worked perfectly.
(That is until the SKINZ/white-background fascists took over around the turn of 
the century and stamped out the choice.)


ps.  So yes, a professional dark theme of the quality of Ambiance would be very 
welcomed thanks.
