I will also express my opinion about the icons of Suru and the theme of Yaru.
When I first saw Unity 8 in a YouTube video, I was amazed at the beauty and modernity of this shell. I imagined that Ubuntu would become more popular than Windows, and Microsoft would go bankrupt.
But the development turned and decided to go to GNOME. I thought that Ubuntu would fall below the baseboard and become a simple fork of Debian GNOME with 5% of changes.
Put the dock. Thanks for that. Somehow, it allocated Ubuntu from Debian.
I learned about the Suru project from Sam Hewitt, who at that time was also developing the Paper iconpack (also very cool, but Suru is more beautiful). Then I found out about the Ubuntu redesign project. Then the theme was called Communitheme.
If you compare GNOME with Yaru and Unity 8, you will notice that the style of windows in Unity 8 is different. The frames were black, the “Close” button had no background. He appeared when you hover the mouse, and then he was red, not orange.
HeaderBar was separated from the frame of the window and was white. And the headlines are not bold, but thin.
The dock and the top panel were black, even without windows.
The application menu did not open to full screen (although it cannot be changed using the theme)
Go to the electronics store, go to the stand with smartphones by different manufacturers and check what kind of icons there are. Are the Google icons changed except shape?
Non-third-party applications are those applications that do not have their own names (Firefox, Rhythmbox, LibreOffice) are meant only to have common names (Music, Podcasts, Screenshot). The exceptions are applications by Canonical, such as Amazon, LXD and others…
After the Rhythmbox icon appeared in the Suru style, I fell into the hell of a perfectionist. I had a feeling that I was using some kind of unofficial “Ubuntu X GNOME+Unity8 Edition” or some kind of amateur distribution like ZorinOS.
Ubuntu is the most popular Linux based OS. Do not believe DistroWatch, which collects information only on page views about distributions. Only fans come there.
View Google Trends statistics. Everybody uses Google.
Even without logging into Google Trends, go to Google in incognito mode and type one letter “u” and you will understand everything yourself.
I believe that the Rhythmbox icon should be removed from Suru.
