Ever seen the GiMP UI? I personally find that to be brain-dead stupid
and user UNfriendly. I seem to be the only one, as no one else files a
bug against it.  There is a "theme" to make it look like Photoshop
(and it doesn't, BTW, but that's a different story).

I see that as an exact parallel to FF 3 on KDE4. If you don't like the
default, there's a theme to change it.

Now, if it didn't *work* - you couldn't hilight text and copy it, or
whatever - then that's a bug.

Ugly isn't a bug, just silly UI design. :-)

I couldn't understand your attitude.
I only wanted to take a photograph of you,
But I was shocked when I heard what you had to say.
You picked up my camera, threw it away,
I didn't really mean to ruin your day.
