It's quite obvious from this thread that we should be doing a better job to point out the differences for people who take a quick look at it and come to the same conclusion as yourself. So we will look at adjusting how we present it and point out the work involved in it.
We do plan on creating other themes, maybe we'll look at doing a metro style one in the future. We have already discussed creating the bootstrap theme for the ExtJS community and have scheduled it for later in the year providing time allows.

Wedgybo, for what it's worth, I noticed the differences from the standard Ext JS theme right away. That's the reason the Clifton theme caught my eye: it's one of the few Ext 4 themes I've seen that doesn't just modify colors but also changes the widget styles. For example, the checkboxes and radio buttons no longer look like they've been lifted straight out of Windows Vista -- that's always a point of irritation for my Mac users.
If you're considering other themes to work on in the near future, I'd suggest that you consider trying to (re)produce the original Neptune theme that Sencha hinted at in this blog post: http://www.sencha.com/blog/ext-js-4-...r-more-stable/
I really liked the soft, subtle look of that theme, as opposed to the brightly-colored, blocky look of the new theme that they're also calling "Neptune" in the Kitchen Sink demo.

It means a lot to me ccg, thanks!
Yea we have a few styles up our sleeve we would like to try next. A metro style one like has been suggested in the past is on the cards. Also having a look at producing a bootstrap one as an open source project.
I'll take a look into that older neptune theme. I must admit I'm not too keen on how the latest version of its turned out either.

+1 for Metro ("Modern UI") theme!
A good Metro (Modern UI) theme will be very welcome for purchase.

I am working on a metro theme for Ext JS 4. I will hopefully have it avaliable for download by the end of the month on my blog http://leonpanjtar.eu/web-design-blog for free of course.

Thought I'd update this thread as I mentioned we were working on it.
We've just released the Bootstrap theme for ExtJS here. http://bootstrap.newbridgegreen.com It's up on GitHub for everyone to access, so get forking and help us making it awesome!
If a mod reads this. Sorry for trying to create a new post twice. I didn't catch the first message saying it needed to be moderated first. Got the message second time around
