Dark theme on new Ubuntu?
For a long while it seemed like the new Ubuntu, Intrepid Ibex, will come with a dark theme by default, but looking at these screenshots of the beta it's a normal light theme with a few cosmetic modifications.
So did they give up on a dark theme?
To be honest, it's a nice idea if they can really pull it off, but I never had good luck with dark themes. If anything, it's because the web is usually so light and arguably it's actually easier to read black on white so it doesn't surprise me (though I know there are some who would say otherwise, but that might be a matter of taste..).
