Create A Website Based On One Color

Are you thinking of creating a website based on one color? One cool tool you can use is a Color Palette. This particular tool will create for you 10 shades of the base color with varying degrees of opacity. The top row emulates opacity over a white background, while the bottom emulates opacity over black background.

The opacity values are 100% opaque, 75%, 50%, 25% and 10% on the top row. The bottom row begins at 85% rather than 100% and continues on as the first. To make it more interesting, you can use different colors other than a white and black backgrounds. I use the color #365215 for this blog. Here is the varying shades of colors using this tool.

Ubuntu Going from Brown to Gray

There are rumors and rumblings that Ubuntu might be going from brown to gray. I certainly would welcome the change. I think, you can only be brown for so long. I think it’s time for Ubuntu to get a face lift, a much needed one. Maybe some Botox shots.

What could be better for the most popular Linux distro in the world to get a new color scheme. Gray is a good start. To tell you the truth, I wasn’t so very keen on the brown color to begin with. After years of color deprivation, I finally switched to a non-earthy color, like green.

Currently, I’m using Linux Mint, a derivative of Ubuntu. If Ubuntu switches to gray, I think it will attract more people to use Ubuntu. By the way, my theme just went from black/white/red to black/white/gray scheme. I’m ahead of the curve. Just pure coincidence.

If the rumor were true, I can’t wait to see this new color scheme.
