Debian 6 First Impressions Linux Magazine

Apparently I am not the only one that thinks that the Debian graphics are appalling:

[Debian 6: First Impressions Linux Magazine](

Debian did have a design contest of sorts, well a brief mailing list thread that had the impossible task of voting the best out of just a handful of rubbish themes.  Given the choices, personally I would have opted for the upstream themes, or just to stick with the Debian Lenny theme which was perfectly okay.

I do wonder how easy or difficult it is to submit themes - do you have to be a Debian developer?  If so, then they should really think about lowering the bar.  I’m sure that I could produce something better, although my last attempt does not appear to be getting widespread approval.

Anyhow, we don’t love Debian for how pretty is looks - we can soon change the theme if it bothers us.
