Although this theme is great and I welcome it, personally I really like
the OpusOS Metacity theme:

I first saw it when Mikael posted a blog about Blam! and have since
started using it at work and home, it's great!

You need gnome-themes-extras 0.7 and I also make use of the Oasis GTK

The only thing I'm not too crazy on is some of the icons, if I could
stick with the original Red Hat Bluecurve icons it would be superb.
