Amen to that, I like the old themes in FC4, FC3, etc. Why the
maintainers decided to depart from that, I have no idea.
At home those fc5 themes & splashes are known as fedora "champagne" :-p
I also agree with that idea about its new look, it is a lot childish in
my opinion, for sure proper to animate the decoration's sky in a music
"festival", the walls of a kindergarten, etc...
Sorry, but I've upgraded to fc5 (from fc4) recently, so maybe I am still
I wouldn't like to be disrespectful with the team in charge at all but
one of the first things I did when customizing the new install was to
take away the /boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz file replacing it for a previous
one, install gnome-themes-extra pack, change to a bluecurve theme,
choose a more serious background, gnome-themes, etc...
But mine it's just an single opinion -there are millions of colours, so
there are millions of tastes.
