Here's one area where the Captivate really falls flat. Most Android devices I've used allow users to customize the heck out of them. There's no customizing with TouchWiz 3.0. Sure, you can change the wallpapers, and the ringers, and the alerts and a number of deep-down settings. You can delete unused home screens. You can rearrange the main menu.
But you can't change the theme. You can't change the basic colors or appearance of the main menu icons. If you don't like the way TouchWiz 3.0 looks, there's nothing you can do about it.
