> a-little-glossy-but-not-too-much widgets) look *really* cool !
> I'd just say that the flashy orange, while it looks good in some places,
> doesn't fit everywhere. I think all these decorations shouldn't hit you
> in the face. Basically, I guess having this orange on small surfaces,
> and in places where your attention is needed is a good thing, but not
> everywhere. For example :
> * On the slider bar (totem, rhythmbox), it looks good because the
> surface is very small (just a few pixels high).
> * On the workspace switcher (both the applet seen in the panel and the
> rectangle coming in the middle of the screen while you're switching), it
> doesn't fit. The active window in the active workspace appears flashy
> orange on all its surface, and I think this is too much of it.
> * If you click on the volume controller,
> (unless there's a problem on my box). The slider looks good, but the
> highlight itself (behind the speaker) is too much, I think.
> * The progress bar,
> is just the limit I think. It is very flashy, but it something on which
> you want the user's attention, and it's not on the screen for a very
> long time anyway. But I would still prefer it more discrete.
> * The window title bar is okay since the gradient makes it looks more
> subtle (and the metacity theme rocks ! ^^), but it still looks too
> flashy I think, and occupies a lot of surface (if you take one or two
> steps back, it's the main thing you'll see on your screen, and it's not
> where your attention should be).
> I want to try being constructive here: what I would suggest is simply
> replace, when it gets too much in your face, this orange with the
> lighter orange used for the App/Places/System menus:
> (or the selected text color, which is the same and looks great). For the
> title bar and progress bars, I would also shift the whole gradient
> either a bit towards lighter colors, or a bit towards brown (brown is
> still the main Ubuntu color, isn't it ?).
> But again, for the global feeling and 95% of the work, it definitely
> *rocks* !! Thanks to all who worked on this, really :)
