"Unfortunately, while what I wrote so far sounds really good, this release is not perfect. One let-down (though a more minor one) is the lack of any real polish, as there are no custom themes in this release whatsoever. Everything is vanilla KDE, looking exactly the same as if you compiled everything yourself from source. The Kubuntu team used to include some very beautiful custom artwork in each release, but what happened? Ever since KDE4 came into the picture, these custom themes have completely disappeared. Granted, the default theme is usually the first thing people change; However first impressions matter quite a bit, and the first impression generated here is that Canonical just doesn’t care to go the extra mile with Kubuntu anymore. Ubuntu got new community themes, a new wallpaper, AND a new GDM theme. Xubuntu received some visual attention as well. Why couldn’t Kubuntu get some love too?
