We know that a lot of folk love Materia so we couldn’t omit this style from our roundup. We think it’s slightly overrated but maybe we are wrong.

8. Ant-Dark

As the name suggest, Ant-Dark is a dark theme. It’s modern in appearance. The theme won’t give your desktop an overtly lively and colourful look. But this might be exactly what you want.

9. GruvBoxPlasma

  1. I loved IRIX with 4Dwm window manager. It was based on the classic Motif window manager. That reminds me, I must try Motif again, it was open sourced eventually.

  2. None of them have a transparent kicker. Also too much darkness. I just build my own from 3 to 4 other styles. If you are in the know it is easy. Inkscape can be your friend. If you want some color, dig up the old oxygen kicker icon set. The current rage of dark and no color is hard on old eyes.

  3. I concur with James, for older eyes (68) dark is not a good choice. I certainly understand younger eyes enjoying the contrast and lower brightness. I’m pretty happy with the ChromeOS Light theme but use either Breeze Extra Icons or Breeze Rounded Icons along with Breeze window decorations. Frankly I have not seen a window decoration I would change Breeze for, they baked that cake just right!
