Well that "puke-ish" (sorry but.. heh) green colour used everywhere in
the tango theme is a mystery to me.

All in all, it looks very gnome-ish, very "industrial" (which I never
liked either).

Yes. And I find them to be.. how to say... very "pixelized", as if they
used only 16 colours or something, definitely a lot less smooth than
what you can see in Crystal, nuoveXT, Linspire Clear, Graphite-Rade8,
Snowish, ... Hence why I meant "a step backwards".
