Phoronix: Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Gets A New Theme, Logo
It's been on the agenda for quite a while now, but the Ubuntu artwork team and Canonical have finally finished work on the new default theme that will be used in forthcoming releases of Ubuntu Linux, including the release of Ubuntu 10.04 LTS "Lucid Lynx" that will be available next month. It's not only a new theme that has arrived, but their brand with other visual assets have also been revised as well. Accompanying the new GTK theme is a new boot-splash screen for Plymouth, a new Canonical web-site, and a very different Ubuntu logo...
No global menu bar 'till the next LTS?
I like the new color palette very much.
i agree 100%! purple adds so much to it's look.

Put the window buttons on the right and the title in the middle and I won't complain more...
From the stupid brown look now to a girly look - that's what they call an improvement...
I expected further move in an elegant monochromish direction, but now it just looks like a cheap mac copy. And did they got rid of the bottom panel?
Yep. In my opinion it looks far better then Karmic. Btw. aren't those buttons from the Oxygene theme? :>

Nice, would have liked to see even MORE of the new style in the actual desktop theme though. Just seems to be the toolbar and the window decorations changed. I mean, look at the new website, it ALL follows the new style (logos, copy, icons, etc) but folder icons and overlay icons are all the same from karmic.
Apart from that, I really like it. Love that new logo font. USE MORE OF IT!!
