The first GTK theme that I really like (Ubuntu 9.04)

I have just discovered for myself a clean and quite finished GTK theme for my Ubuntu desktop. It is called the "New Wave". To use the theme, just invoke System>Preferences>Appearance and select the "New Wave" theme, as usual.

To make the theme usable, you need to switch to the "New Wave Dark Menus" variant - before you confirm the "Appearance Preferrences" dialog, click "Configure" and select the "New Wave Dark Menus" in the "Controls" tab.

This is what you get:

Here are some more previews (the theme suits quite well even to the NetBeans IDE):

OK, I have checked it - IMO it is too dark overall (the silver color of the toolbar icons is replaced by dark gray), but it is not a bad theme either...

This is also the first Gnome theme I like, except for one thing: the loading bars look a bit old.
