Sorbet is a new Ubuntu Lucid community proposed theme with subtle gradients and light colors. The Metacity buttons are based on the Homosapien theme (it seems more and more themes go "Homosapien") and the theme itself is an "loose interpretation" of the new Ubuntu Single Sign On look.

This is how Sorbet looks right now:

The mockup above looks amazing, with one note though: some of the elements are way to big - hopefully the actual theme will be better proportioned.

You can download Sorbet from HERE (it currently looks like the first screenshot, not the mockup).

Please note that Sorbet uses the latest Murrine engine v0.91.0. To use it in Ubuntu Karmic, see THIS post.
