For what its worth, the only time I would use the buttons is for Pidgin
when receiving a new message, and they don't seem to work for me (if this
have since been fixed, sorry!)
As far as the file copy progress, it doesn't really make sense when I watch
it 0/1 and spin animation. Seems a step backwards from a good old progress
bar/percentage. I'd rather see a lot of the notifications go back to basics
(dialogs, baloons, etc), or go without interaction until the interaction
works. Glossy widgets as a notification area feel bloated to the eye,
especially when comparing them to Ubuntu notifications (which is similar in
a lot of ways to Outlook email notifications)
I know my argument is based on Pidgin -- a GTK application -- but I don't
think a write-up is needed for why Pidgin is much better to use than Kopete
(or is a write-up due?)
My 2 cents. Constructive and appreciative. :)
