Looking at this more...
The current default and bluelight themes are scalable - you can change the font
size from your browser. The smoothfeather theme is fixed pitch - you can't
change the font size.
Also, smoothfeather doesn't fit on my screen. That theme won't be usable where I
work because many of our users have their screen resolutions set to 800x600.
When designing themes, keep in mind that back office workers might have poor
eyesight, or may be blind. The developer community put a lot of work into making
the current theme accessible. If the default theme is changed, maybe we can
market the current theme as the accessible one.

Not only is the current default theme lightweight, its reading direction is reversible. Will the new themes work in RTL layout?

To: de...@ofbiz.apache.org Date: Friday, April 10, 2009, 3:21 PM Now that we have some nice themes in place I'm wondering if we shouldn't change the default theme, especially for the back-end. The old blue-grey-flat theme (which we should probably move to a theme component) is functional and I suppose lightweight too, but perhaps doesn't give the best first impression.
Right now we have 2 alternative themes for the back-end (the bluelight theme and the smoothfeather theme which is meant to look like the new web site), and 1 alternative theme for ecommerce (the multiflex theme).
One issue with all of these is they haven't been tested as thoroughly as the old stuff, but I'm not too worried about that because there are issues with the new default lots of people will see it soon and we should be able to get things fixed pretty fast. In my own testing both of the back-end ones seem pretty solid (I haven't played with the ecommerce one yet).
Anyway, please respond with your thoughts on this. I considered opening a vote, but a general discussion is probably better first (and a vote may not be needed depending on how this discussion goes).
BTW, yes, this is for marketing purposes and should happen before the release branch next Tuesday.
