Ubuntu Re-Branding and Ditching The Brown

Brand section of the Ubuntu Wiki has been updated with some of the nice and fresh look that they are teasing for the next LTS version 10.04.

The new style of Ubuntu is driven by the theme "Light". We've developed a comprehensive set of visual guidelines and treatments that reflect that style, and are updating key assets like the logo accordingly. The new theme takes effect in 10.04 LTS and will define our look and feel for several years.

I have to say that I like it. The brown isn't 100% gone, but it's mostly left, replaced by a clean look, with some sections (the menu bar and dark-grey on white icons) taking their cue from the Mac menubar (IMHO). More examples are here.
