I'm a mere user only but I want to express my clear support for the "Borealis" theme proposal. From the couple of mock-ups available at


I perceive a friendly and in the same time pofessional and polished look. The overall brightness is just right, and in particular, it has the right balance between bling and unobtrusiveness. People frequently seem to forget that the desktop is only the ground upon which your own work thrives. In this respect, many and even most proposals are far too pushy or even somehow infantile.
Maybe there should be a poll or similar. Right know, I can only wonder what would make "FlyingHigh" the preferred candiate apart from the shere number of successive [more or less successful] drafts. It's quite ok for a layman's work but it looks fairly amateurish compared to "FedoraBorealis". [And please do not respond by bullying me to contribute make "FlyingHigh" an "even better" theme. Even a mere user has the right to make a statement only which is a legitimate way of contributing, too.]
