No kidding...

I hate to say, but this is really bad :(

The rounded look and title bar buttons (minimize/maximize) look great,
but the black and red scrollbars.......the super red gnome menu
highlighting.....and the orange orange orange is hurting my eyes.

I had upgraded and gotten the nice new title bar but the colors didn't
change until the reboot.

Don't take offense from this message, it's just my opinion, and my
opinion is most features in the new theme don't correspond with each
other at all.

Definitely keep the new title bar effects :)
