I like the red :)

Go for it, your desktop should not look dull or boring.

Stay with the "Darkside"!!!.  To be serious, I find darker themes much easier on the eyes,

im liking it i agree it is easier on the eyes, i may try a blue/black variation and see if ilike that too. I the black on color combo better than the white or grey to be honest.

finallly finished setting it up using a theme called ambience black out red
with  rave x red icon sets (still wish they had faneza red icons but these will do for now).
digging the totally black look.

Here's what I've been making.  I find this easier on my seriously damaged eyes.  I like to use relatively brightly coloured icons too.  I think it works pretty well.

looks pretty nice. i also use redshift too so at night my screen is very mellow on the eyes and now with this dark theme
its super mellow. I may try a blue/black theme next for now im digging the red/black look i think i will stick to the dark theme
for now.

They all look good, and there's a sense of minimalism with your final work.  You're keeping it functional, clean, and simple.  ;)

thanks man i actually decided to download a very very simple black wallpaper and it looks SUPER clean!
im sticking with this look i think. I also like the black 3d plane dock on a black background it adds a nice glassy texture
with out being to in yourself. i think i dig this look more the the osx-grey/aqua colors.

For me, this one is easiest on my eyes.   Good choice!  ;)

I also like the tree theme that AndyInMokum has going on.  His theme reminds me of Bodhi Linux, and Bodhi Linux was known for it beautiful art themes.

You guys both get an A+  :)
