Yup, Wikipedia has finally changed themes. It's had Monobook as long as I can remember WP being a big name - at least 5 years, possibly longer, and now it has a new theme - Vector, I believe it's called.

What do you think of it? Do you like it? Love it? Hate it?

If so, why?

hmmm.... which one are you refering to? I can't see any differences, looks the same to me.

http://blog.wikimedia.org/2010/05/13/a-new-look-for-wikipedia/ has more on it.

It's not on all of Wikimedia Foundation's sites yet:

Eek.  It all looks so very wrong.  Put it back, put it back!

They got us used to it, and then they suddenly changed it XD

To be honest, it's not bad, but I definitely would prefer the old one, simply because I'm used to it. I really can't stand it when a site makes an abrupt change like this (announced in advance or otherwise) and doesn't even give its users a chance to switch to the older theme -.-

Boo wiki, boo youtube.

I think you can switch to the old one from your preferences, am I wrong..?

I don't see the point :P Since I use a mobile to access it usually plus there is this cool app for iPhone/iTouch that puts the entire Wikipedia into your phone so you can view it offline O.O

The *entire* archive? English WP has 3.3m articles, even at a very conservative average of 1k per article, you'd be talking 3.3 GB of space uncompressed.

Thank god we have 16 GB of space on most smartphones :P
