I still like the current theme for the default. As long as others can pick an alternative they like better. But I'm partial to the green and blue combination.

Blue and green is fine with me. But having the option to pick a theme would be the best option in my opinion

Nature? We're talking about the Amiga here! What does nature know about it?

Here it was between theme2 and theme3...

After looking at the both side by side Im going to opt for theme3.. It has a warmer feel to it.

@DaveyD

If I was the webmaster I would say "these are the colours that I like, so there!". However I probably would alienate the whole community and only have 300 members not almost 3000!

A useful poll, I chose the green.

I voted for green.

Call me a heretic, but the green gives me nostalgic feelings of my good old little green desktop (TOS). One thing I liked better about the ancient Atari ST running TOS compared to classic Amigas running Workbench 1.x was the general look of the default desktop. Although I do like blue a lot, I did not like the combination of colors (especially due to the orange). Also the TOS icons looked more professionally designed.

But of course on the technical front TOS never was no match for AmigaOS.

I like theme 3. It has good contrast in the groups so white and grey boxes are clearly seperated rather than flushed out all white. The use of blue backround also sort of lifts the groups off the background and cleans things up a little. Blue or red text dosent matter much so long as it dosent blend into the backround (eg green text on red backround). The green just clashes for me though. And the use of white boxes on a plain white backround washes things out in these themes. The loss of the OS4 windows look isnt so bad however. I liked it, very unique, but it was alot of images to load (especialy for dialup users) and AW sometimes failed to serve them.

Custom colours would be cool though but, too much work imho.

My vote is for the old theme....even if the one you have labelled isn't exactly the old theme as it has different graphics. So we can have the old colours without the slow graphical upload, which I guess was the main advance in this update. Old color combo please.

Ok. Going back to my happy place now.

Green is color of HOPE.

So I would choose Blue and green as my preferred theme even if Amiga is not anymore just HOPE but reality...

Now I would choose Theme # 5... Blue and Burgundy as pure red may just be too bright from the eyes.

I think an option to let the user customise the colors and layout would be a lot better !

I vote for 3,2, and one, in that order. I have never
seen any dried out lime peel in art or business. Lose
the green...even Suse saw the light and dumped the
bright green lizard...SO unprofessional. Saw a house
painted similar shade on the way to the beach...EYESORE!
Fine for a personal website, but for a comeback of credibility
in the Amiga world, clashing colors don't cut it. 'Morons!'
is not the first response you hope for, from new visitors to
AWN.
