yet it got 18 pages of praise by Ubuntu users, for the choice of 
colour palette especially. it's worth listening to that.

it doesn't promise to have a roadmap, it's just a brief experiment
posted on a whim by a forum member: a mockup.

the AWN-like dock is completely unrealistic of course, as i said in a
previous email. nonetheless the overall balance of colour is appealing
to many people: reading the comments i get the feeling people are
looking for less colour rather than more of it..
