To counterbalance the increasing amount of bright and shiny-buttoned Metacity’s of late I present you with some sober minimal Metacity themes to install and enjoy.

W.I.N.G Metacity

W.I.N.G is a port of the popular Emerald theme of the same name. As with Case above it’s both light, airy and with some unique window control icons adds a bit of identity whilst remaining modally minutest.

Okay… so this one isn’t technically a real Metacity given it’s a mock-up but I had to include it. It’s a great example of how a non-showy minimal Metacity should be and deserve to be made reality.
