Wrong, wrong, wrong. It's *ALL* about audience. *Who* you're trying to
talk to. Average joe blow wants flash for sure. If you don't, great.
Awesome WM stands in wait.

While I might disagree with alot of what Mark S. had said design-wise,
"Pretty *is* a feature" and people want it.

A GUI is all about what you want to communicate to the user. How you
want to make them feel while they use the computer.

But history on this list shows that most here don't have a clue on this
so I'll just jump out of this chat and continue on with my brown ideas. ;)
