Change for the sake of change. They want to look more like Vista/IE7, since that's what people are getting on their computers. Instead of leveraging the investment already made in establishing a UI interface that has worked for 10+ years.

Not to mention the graphics just plain suck. They're not consistent even within themselves and look mismatched, out of place, and low-res. Lacking any of the polish existing in the FF2 theme.
