Well, for what I can see on that thread, users are proposing other themes and
combinations of colors not iaora. Just you are proposing the iaora blue theme,
with little backup from other users.

Salim, can you just change the color theme to what you like instead of trying
to force everyone to use what you like ? from your comments here and on the
thread you posted you are expecting on devs on agreeing with you no matter what
as if they don't, they would be hurting users feelings, which clearly is not

The default Mageia theme should be something more conservative, as we all know,
there are lots of different tastes and is going to be impossible to agree in
one theme that is liked by all users. IMO, the default oxygen theme with the
default color palette is that conservative theme that can please most of the
users, it also looks good and professional, there's a reason why it has been
the default KDE theme since many years with improvements in each version and
many other versions also use it. If the idea is to bring something different to
the desktop that can differentiate us from other distros I think a good
wallpaper is more important and achieves that goal much clearly than a color
scheme for the desktop.

Any user is able to change the theme to whatever one they like the most after
installation, as salim can do it too.  We can package more themes to give users
more choice if needed, post installation. 

I also want to ask the art team to have in mind the opinion of Mageia users, I
know that you know what you are doing but it doesn't hurt to know the opinion
of whom are going to use what you choose. The poll I found on the forums is the
closest thing to knowing the opinion of our users on what they would like to
see in the next version, but maybe a more official poll would be a good idea.

Also I think this bug should be closed, is pointless at this time. This
discussion should be taken on the forums so we can gather the opinion of other
users, not just one trying to impose his way.
