    Those themes are for Gnome Shell, not Unity. – mikewhatever Mar 29 '12 at 22:03
  • They work in Unity also as they are GTK3 based – stephenmyall Mar 29 '12 at 22:09

It's plenty of themes, just have a look at this great site: Ubuntu Unity Themes

In fact, they are just 4 installed by default because they have fo fit into the 700MB live image ;)

  • in earlier releases it was so easy to customize themes – user17696 Mar 29 '12 at 22:41
