"Departing from six years of interface tradition, Canonical has revealed a new 'light' default theme and updated Ubuntu logo that introduces a pallet of purple, orange, slate grey, and tan," writes The Register's Austin Modine.
"In what reads like old school branding fluff, the theme of light is supposed to represent precision, reliability, collaboration and freedom," writes The Inquirer's Lawrence Latif. "The question is which of those isn't represented by having the word 'Linux' in your product name?"
"At first glance — potentially the second, third, and fourth, too — the theme appears to be heavily influenced by Apple's Mac OS X," according to Erictric. "The design team has effectively gotten rid of the bottom toolbar, and simply maintained the top toolbar — which again, seems heavily influenced by Mac OS X."
