My 2007 site used the theme called Breeze which has become our standard....  Under 2010 it appears this theme is gone?

1. is it gone?
2. has it been recreated and can I download it
3. is there a way to recreate it quickly

as you can tell we don't want to use the default it messes us up

Unfortunately, the theming engine is entirely different between Sharepoint 2007 and 2010, so themes from one don't work in the other.  If the site was upgrade from 2007 and still in v3 UI, it would be using the old theming engine (and thus the old themes), but new sites are created in v4 UI and thus only use the new THMX theme format.  There isn't an automatic way to create a THMX file from a 2007 theme.  You could potentially manually pick out the color scheme from the original theme and create a THMX from that to use with SP 2010.
