Linux News Today: Canonical "Secretly" Changed the Ubuntu Orange Color to Another Orange
Canonical has made some changes to the famous orange color and has changed it, in secret, to a different kind of orange.
The famous color that’s been used in Ubuntu for a long time serves two purposes. One is to make the operating system easily recognizable, and the other one is to drive people who don’t like orange crazy. Most of the community doesn’t really care about the color being used, and people either let it be or change it; the rest of the users are always asking Canonical to replace it.
Well, it looks like they have already changed it from orange to another shade of… orange. It’s important to know that Canonical also employs a team of designers, and they are the ones actually running the company, or so the rumor goes. In any case, they don’t just slap a random orange tint to the OS, they are very strict, and they make sure that it’s the same one used all over.
A different kind of orange
The modification Canonical made is not all that important, but it’s there and it’s noticeable, especially if you know where to look for it. This information was brought to us by a member of the Ubuntu community who clearly saw way too many conspiracy movies. He thinks that there might be some occult reasoning behind this change, and we can’t dismiss that. We’re not going to tell you his name, but we can point you towards his Google+ account.
After all, modifying the color from #DD4814 to #E95420 was a big move and they didn’t tell anyone. Well, to be fair, they did talk about it on GitHub and Launchpad, but who watches those channels anyway?
It’s also interesting to note that the changes have already been implemented with Ubuntu 15.10 (Wily Werewolf), so it’s definitely something spooky going on.
In other news, the Illuminati are still trying to control the world with chemtrails, and we never actually got to the moon.
