The MistBased package contains 6 MistBased GTK themes, with more than 70 colour schemes for gnome-colour-chooser config tool.
The idea for these themes where for having a simple and minimal available (of course those people loves fancy themes will not enjoy this one...), as well for making more popular the recent feature of applying colour schemes on Gnome themes, which mostly Gnome users still don't know how possible it is.
Were also a concern being somehow not that far to the Motif-based decorations used on Irix, as well for being the most compatible as possible for the .gnomecc values used from gnome-colour-chooser (which there are very hard to find themes so compatible as this one).
GNOME is an international effort to build a complete desktop environment-the graphical user interface which sits on top of a computer operating system-entirely from free software. This goal includes creating software development frameworks, selecting application software for the desktop, and working on the programs which manage application launching, file handling, and window and task management.
GNOME is part of the GNU Project and can be used with various Unix-like operating systems, most notably Linux, and as part of Java Desktop System in Solaris.
The name originally stood for GNU Network Object Model Environment, though this acronym is deprecated. The GNOME project puts heavy emphasis on simplicity, usability, and making things "just work".
