the bisigi project

I haven't feel like updating recently but I though I'd post about what desktop themes I'm currently using. So I decided to install all the themes and give each of them a try for about a week. And post about them.

Except I forgot about posting so, here's everything in one post.

The bisigi project is a set of free, high quality gnome themes. Visit the themes page
to see some gorgeous thumbnails.

And well this is my experience with them so far...



Airlines
This one is one of the best in the bisigi project. The most exciting part about the theme is that all buttons are rounded, that really changes the feeling of the theme, it's one I'd use again.
aquadreams
A Mac-ish theme, like aqua, but green.
Tropical
A gray theme with a solid feel, a dark bars and green highlights.
balanzan
This theme just screams "ubuntu" in general and "koala" in particular, it has a very similar feeling to the original koala themes but doens't beat neither humanity nor dust sand. So it's not a very good impression at all, nice wallpaper tho.
Exotic
This is just like tropical but with orange highlights, at this point I'm starting to get bored.

Ellanna
And this one is just like aquadreams but pink, I do have to mention the attention to detail, look at the ladybugs in the icon theme.
Isn't that cute? But it's just not for me.
sunrise
Another theme that screams "ubuntu", another nice wallpaper, another too much orange theme. The engine has a nice murrina feel about it, it definitively is murrina based but subdued. I may use this one again but with different colors.

I haven't tried Wild-Shine long enough but it is basically Tropical with yellow highlights. Well I'll post more once I get tired of Wild Shine.
