No, I'm not being confused :)
The titlebar uses PNG I believe, and those are probably black, which I
don't believe has anything to do with that GTK theme. That's what I

No, I'm not anti-MS. It's just that I believe Xfce should have its own
image. And when I say that, I say compared to major players on the
market, IMHO BeOS is dead (and has been for quite a while - I know
about Zeta, but Zeta is a stillborn project mostly), so using yellow
is not a problem.
I believe it's about the general look. The small lower panel - upper
taskbar is Xfce. Everyone can tell some setups from miles ago: XP,
MacOSX, KDE, Gnome. Xfce should do the same. Colours do have an
influence too on this aspect.
And about colour, I just don't believe that black does well with
orange. If someone kindly points me to the Xfwm theme, I'll try to
modify the PNGs colour to something more apropriate.
Ah, well, after all it's just an opinion, hope I didn't offend anybody :)
Anyway, don't mind me, it's not me who will make the final decision.
