The green looks quite good indeed :-) I am also almost tempted by it, but I think some other users may like a more traditional approch.

Yes, well said! I think we should discard tdeui10 (the light one) because it is too similar to the KDE 3.5 ones.
tdeui9 (the dark one) is probably a good balance between changes and traditional look.

One more small thing, if you can fix it. The background of the inner part of each box is different and it looks like there is a double border for each box. Could you adjust it? See the attach picture for what I mean.

Every developer is copied to this mails. If we don't get any more feedback within few days, early next week I will ask Tim and Slavek directly (this weekend I am busy and probably I will have no time for TDE).
