WebAdmin: New Theme
The interface of Astaro, despite using great AJAX features, is very polluted, with oversized buttons and lots of visual pollution. It would be interesting to have more "clean" menus, the number of objects displayed on the screen also confuses and look not so intuitive.
Maintain branding, color scheme, but with a different layout, graphics on transparency, white background,
We feel WebAdmin is vastly superior to Fortinet in many ways, and have no desire to emulate their design direction. However style is a personal preference, and we have recently updated the GUI in hundreds of ways for UTM 9 which is now in open beta at www.astaro.org and will be GA in Mid-July 2012. Hopefully this is closer along to what you would like.

really like the look of UTM9! Thanks!
I like SonicWalls interface... http://nsa.demo.sonicwall.com/main.html
They have an extremely clean layout... I do like Astaro's current theme, but I do agree that a make over would be nice... But if this is the case, allow users to revert to the old one if they wish... Would make everyone happy :)
