I'm definitely +1 for a new default color theme for the 3.0 cycle.

I'm afraid the two themes proposed still have two strong colors for
menu background color / panel header background color. I think it will
look odd on a dashboard for example.
I'd like to see something less aggressive in this area, WDYT ?

Otherwise my vote would go for the blue proposition
