I really like the idea and the designs, *but* (you knew that was coming,
right? :P ) I don't like the color.

Color is one of the strongest branding mechanisms there is. CentOS in
the past has used aqua/light blue on login screens, splash screens, and
so on. I think changing to dark blue is a bad idea. It's like seeing the
IBM logo in green; it's "just not" IBM anymore.

I'm not saying that we have to use the same blue that we have in the
past, but certainly we should stick to the same general "area".
