Yes, obviously certain things (such as colors) are really subjective and individual. I for one never liked the ubuntu-brown (actually in wharty i still liked it :) ).
I think (and hope) that we will simply polish the current theme more for the next release, the reviews and feedback have been very positive so far.

Would be great if you could help out there - just get in touch!
All the best
