Please excuse my poor word play :) what is this theme all about? Actually it's just Ubuntu's Human theme (the caramel-orange one) using the ubuntulooks engine, slightly modified.
I was sick of the poor usability of the progress bars, so I took the theme and replaced them by Cairo Clearlook's progressbars. I changed the text to black (better contrast), and made the desktop icon's text black on transparent white, which helps a LOT if you have bright background images. If you do not want to use the transparent icon text background, just edit gtk-2.0/gtkrc and comment the two lines "NautilusIconContainer" near the top.
Since this is the open source world, why not share the theme I personally use?
THIS THEME IS SIMPLY "HUMAN" WITH CLEARLOOKS PROGRESS BARS!
