Description:

There are always rumours about Google launching their own OS based on Linux. Here is my take on what it might look like.

I've finished this theme now, so it's time for its full release.

Thanks for all the positive feedback - A matching icon theme is coming soon!

Recommended GTK theme is Glossy with the following colours:

Selected items background - #C3D9FF
Selected items text - #9D9D9D
All other backgrounds - #ffffff
All other text - #000000

Nice idea! I've always wondered what a Google GTK theme would look like... I always base the idea from the look of Gmail...

Thanks! I based this mainly on the bold primary colours that Google use on their homepage. I'm thinking of making an icon set based on some of the icons used on the gmail site that would hopefully complement this theme.

Thanks - I'm tired of the Vista themes too! This isn't finished yet, I still have a bit of tweaking to do and a few extra button icons to add (sticky/shade etc)
