I think the GUI was made to look similar to the Motif default, I can't
tell the difference if I have two Emacsen next to each other, one with
Motif and one with Lucid menubars.  Motif defaults have been considered
a bit "heavy" by users used to some other look.

Your new look is more GTK-like, and thus perhaps a bit more modern looking.
I really can't say I prefer one over the other, they both look OK to me.
