For me, Oxygen and Bespin are unbeatable, but I find Oxygen better in some ways and Bespin better in another ways.

By now I choose Bespin, buta fusion would be nice.

Ionizedair looks nice, but unfortunately it's too buggy to use. Enable it and you lose the logout dialogue, which is inconvenient to say the least.

QtCurve is ok. I just wish it would allow user to select the menu stripe color. I wish someone would update ThinKeramik for use with KDE 4.2.x and Qt 4.5.

Oxygen rocks all, but QtCurve is pretty nice for GTK apps.

Oxygen sliders, scollhandlers and progressbar the rest bespin would be perfect; I love the gradients in bespin and the way buttons look but I really don't like the roundness of the sliders, handles and progressbar;

Atm I have started using the murrina gtk theme is kde, I really like gtk themes :D

I use Oxygen, but I'm really impressed by the work on the (optional) Air theme for KDE 4.3.

Plastique!!!

Oxygen is okay, but horribly unoptimized (I can actually see flicker). The other popular styles are too shiny and get in the way.


Don't look back! (Or you might see the giants whose shoulders we stand on)

I think that this is a problem with kde looks in general, too much shine, too many things moving popping up (boxes around icons and plasmoids and plasmoid toolboxes, giant tooltips), too many things on the screen (those horrible cashews) :(

Bespin FTW!!! :D
But seriously, I find it really good. And I don't think it's getting in my way. It's perfect for me.
And the Amarok hack etc. makes it even better.

I would just like to propose that screenshots are added to every new theme, as I know that I don't know all of them, and probably others to.
So here it goes; My Bespin:

It's gotta be Oxygen for me.

With a decent colour scheme and a little tweaking it's perfect.

Compact, unobtrusive and easy on the eye.

Cheers,
