Summary0006441: Theme usability is suspect
DescriptionThere has been a fairly steady flow of criticism of the new theme in ClearOS 7. Most everyone is happy with the look of the theme, but usability scores are low. Two things have come up in particular:

- The web interface needs to be more condense. There's too much information lost due to the "grandma size" text and spacing.

- The exceptionally poor menu system. To quote a long time power user from the ClarkConnect days:

"It (ClearOS forums) is actually worse than the current Clear interface...which I also find horrendously tedious with the constant hold and hover in order to do anything. I'm sure it sells easier with marketing, but anybody that knows what they're doing already probably is more of the same inclination as myself. Pretty /= Useful"

To add to the menu criticism, none of the core software developers use it. None!
