Default Someone doesn't like black!

Matthias asked me to forward interesting forum threads to the list, so
here's the first one I've seen:

http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=232976

someone doesn't like black notifications FWIW I don't much like black
either (on a related note I hope color customization makes it into
gnome-shell soon). Not sure if there's anything to do here other than
tell him he's wrong and Fedora believes Black Is Good, though

Here's another guy:

he figured that he can install notification-daemon-engine-nodoka to get
'nicer' notifications...

And here are two more (me is one of them)

I already outlined my criticism a month ago in this list, so I'm not
going to repeat it here.

To be fair, there are also people who like them. Paul wrote:
"the newer notifications are more eye catching, which means they’re more
effective at doing their job."
I think this is no surprise, because the new notifications are *much*
bigger then the old ones. Also, there is no discrimination between
notification urgency [1], which IMO is a major drawback.

Christoph
