Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Now, I'm not strictly looking for an opinion, so I hope this does not turn into a flame war. BUt browsing gnome-look.org I have not found what I'm looking for. I bet what I want is like a buried gem.
I'm looking for a pleasing theme, well, one pleasing to me (and I'm guessing others do to if what I want exists).
What I'm looking for are some suggestions on a GTK+ 3 theme, based on the following:
- Preferably has a similar GTK+ 2 theme.
- Has some color. And that color something other than the overdone blue or ubuntu orange. I'm tired of finding themes that are monochromatic in any color, and especially grey at that. If they do have color, some are quite garish.
- Has some distinction between UI elements. A lot of themes I find have very little contast between the window/background container and a control (button/dropdown list/etc). Zikitwo is similar to what I'm looking for, but the white is to much.
- Plays nicely with Mutter themes that support GTK colors.
Well, you were specifying alot of criteria there. I can tell you that i like "greybird" from shimmerproject alot, because it's a mixture of not-too-bright and not-too-dark, but you've mentioned that you don't want anything grey-ish.
You're not making it easy for anyone to provide you with a satisfying answer, so i suggest that you're on your own with this. At least you're not having some serious problem with your computer which would cry for help. No offense, but we're not a free in-depth eyecandy research agency here, but just other users who might be willing to help with solutions for computer problems.
Thanks for your input bloody, I guess I did post at the wrong place. I'm going to mark this is solved as it's apparent this was a bad idea, I just got tired to seeing the same stuff over and over and was looking for opinions as I figured maybe someone else would share my preference.
And yes, I am aware you help with technical problems here, as I've helped with quite a few myself. No where does this say strictly technical problems, so I figured I'd give it a shot, seeing as it's so technical as to have a screen shot subforum.
