I know that is it subjective, but still FC6 had the best theme still,
and it was downhill from there... F7 was OK, but F8 is just too
simple. I believe that is can idea could be much more rafined... I'm
not a designer myself but I worked for more than 10 years as design
critic for bunch of designers and they usually respect my comments
becuase I like to be objective and honest.

The honest thing to say for F8 theme that it looks unfinished, that
the design team didn't have time to finish it or if they intended to
look as it looks now then they should rafinded it more...
