Sevenplastic grey theme is a GTK theme with a Windows Seven feel based off of the midnightblackplastic theme for GTK 2.0. It gives you a grey Seven-ish taskbar, similar to the newest builds of Windows Seven.
I did not create the MidnightBlackPlastic theme, it was some character named "Wes", but credits (and huge thanks) for their artwork go to him! I added shortcut icons, but since iconizing is not possible on Ubuntu 8.04 and under, I added a window selector to keep my taskbar neat and clean like in Windows. The theme looks the best when the gnome panel is set to a size of 38 pixels or greater (windows Seven taskbar is 40 pixels). Anything below that size unstacks your date and time. The sidebar is courtesy of screenlets, and I use Emerald and Compiz Fusion to get many desktop effects, including the aero theme. Feel free to improve on this theme, just make sure you give credit to myself and the creator of the midnightblackplastic theme. Thanks!

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”.
- Entirely new dropdown menus.
- New metacity theme (by ZeroPrime).
- Other minor changes that make the theme overall more aesthetically pleasing. No need to mention them all here! Just know its a better theme now.
