It looks like there is a new trend for releasing flat themes. There are rumours that iOS 7 will also have a flat theme.

This is what the author said, on his blog:

“I’ve noticed a trend is afoot to flatten the appearance of themes. Chrome OS is a good example of this and it is rumored the new iOS 7 will be the same. Evidence of this is observable in Ubuntu as the file manager icons of the navigation tree are flat.

I used this as a design goal for this release and I am pleased to announce the availability of the AmbianceX (AX) theme for Ubuntu 13.04,”
