Just installed Expression Blend (beta 1) This has to be one of the ugliest IDEs I've seen. It reminds me of wandering through the lobby and halls of the W hotel in Seattle at night! Creepy!
I switched to the Light scheme right away which is marginally better than the dark, monochromatic look.
If you don't mind, could we just have a "normal" Windows interface option - like in the good ol' days?
