Just my 2 cents (4.6 Canadian cents indeed):
I like it, it took some getting used to, and is rather white, but it stands out from all the other windows colour scemes out there. The whole effect is rather impressive. As for the look if your playing in a dark room, turn up/on the lights, and problem solved.
It may just be a cheap way to try and sell more computers, but the best way to sell them is just to have people see/experience them, anyone who buys a multi-thousand dollar computer just based on a windows theme is a moron, and doesn't deserve to have the money or computer.
but thats just my two cents.....
