Widgets and the Window Manager
From Tango Desktop Project
The Tango widget and window manager themes form the foundation of the way the operating system is percieved. It is important that a default theme should have the following qualities:
- Clean - it should not be distracting.
- Usable - eye candy does not take precedence over usability.
- Professional - the theme should be able to be used in all environments, from the workplace to the home; it should not be embarassing or garish.
- Longevity - it has to stand the test of time; it should not get old after a few days.
- Pizazz - there should be some kick to spice up desktops a bit.
