Holly crap!!! I have heard about 'gtkperf', but have never run it
before. I did so now on my PC. P4 2.2GHz with 1GB ram and integrated
ATI video card running Ubuntu 7.10 (32bit).

I couldn't believe the difference it makes when you switch between
themes. The exact same PC, just different themes!!  Here are my

28s - Custom (mixture of what I like)
21s - Bluecurve
26s - ClearLook
24s - Human
17s - Mist
43s - Crux

Wow, not all themes are created equal!  :-)
