What made you a troll is not the fact that you dislike the theme - is the way you said it. You do not have to degrade a person's work or skills to express your dislike.

Contrary to other people, there are those like me who like simpliciy, and most importantly, a theme that makes the application look like a native app. Phoenity does both. The icons are simple yet easy to identify with what they do (and IMHO that's how icons should be), and Phoenity is right now the most native looking theme on Windows Classic, even better than Qute and Mozilla's Classic. In a few words, its simplicity makes Phoenity a very functional theme. This is the same reason why I like the Bluecurve icons above all other icon sets.

A theme doesn't need "cool" graphics with an overuse of transparency, gradients or 3D perspectives to be good.
