But the white theme makes the menu look like a bunch of letters on a sheet of paper. Not a lot to it, certainly not enough for it to be horrendous.
Man, you can barely read the text on that thing. Bright font on a white background is a no-no for me. Besides, I really don't like how the lower icons are an even brighter white, if they were more of a light grey color it'd be a step in the right direction.
It just looks wrong. It looks like the whole OS was designed for the dark theme, and they just slapped a light theme afterward. Which is funny, because it probably went the other way around.
