This is a mockup for the new Ubuntu release Intrepid Ibex. If you like the designs please please email the Ubuntu design team to try to get a move on with moving Ubuntu into the 21st century. If you don't like some of the things on the design, please comment, i feel moving these kind of designs needs be a real community effort.

*** Want this desktop?!?? Find resources below :)***
So basically, people have been commenting about a) how they want to use this theme and b) how it's infeasible which i find a little silly really, since i've been using it for a while now and im quite happy to use it so I thought i would share with you. Enjoy

GTK Theme:

Login Screen:

Okay.. I wasnt too happy with my emerald theme part of the mockup so at the moment im just using a vista theme :0 but it looks pretty lush so i thought i would link.

Is it posible to make it work in Ubuntu 12.04 (with GNome 3.4)? Because I was willing to test it in Ubuntu 12.04 but Ubuntu Tweak does not recognices it and for what I read it is not supported for what I explained :'(

I love the mockup. In fact when I have time I will have to try and get this onto my Linux Mint... I think if we can make a FOSS icon set that looks a bit more like the Aqua Apple icons... it would look very good. I suppose the new growl (notification system) actually looks better because the yellow doesn't really fit.

Thanks a lot
