Shiki-Colors aims to have the elegance of a dark theme, with the usability of a light theme. It's better described as a hybrid between the two designs in my previous set of "Clearlooks-Colors" GTK themes.
It's rendered with Clearlooks and some objects from the upcoming "Murrine SVN" engine. There is an alternate (slightly inferior) version made without Murrine dependencies available as well. You can get the Murrine SVN engine in Ubuntu by going to this site and selecting the appropriate .deb:
There are four color variations (Orange, Blue, Green, Red). A matching set of Icons, Wallpapers, GDM themes and Usplash screens can also be downloaded separately from gnome-look.org
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".
