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.
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.
