Comment 299 for bug 532633

Optimus 55, if you don't like the ability to customize your desktop or implement alternative themes, there are a number of proprietary operating systems that already accommodate you. As for Ubuntu, one of the really neat things is that it does have a number of themes that ship with it as well as several hundred if not thousand variations and alternatives that are desktop ready on art.gnome.org. To me, this is a plus, not a minus.

Regarding the community, the reason there are so many comments is because there are a lot of people that care about Ubuntu. If a similar change were made on one of the less popular distributions, hardly anyone would notice. People are here that want to see it succeed!
