Ever since the release of fiesty there has been a fair bit of argument in favor of a new look for Ubuntu, and over the months since it’s new releases (fiesty and Gutsy) the argument in favor of a new look got stronger and stronger with every new user submitted mockups. Some of them are quite stunning (mockup1, mockup2, mockup3). But this new mockup is a bit differant than the rest. I am all for the power of customization and more options in linux, but I am not in favor of a “default” look of ubuntu looking like it’s commercial alternative (in this case OSX). For what it’s worth, the mockup itself is a fairly decent job, even if I don’t see myself using it.
