Wikipedia reskin

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?

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:

...and we’ve rolled out the new interface to Wikinews (English and Serbian), Wikimedia Commons, and now English Wikipedia.

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.
