My gosh. that is one of the first opinions from an ubuntu fan that admits
needs to be seriously done about the ubuntu/gnome theme. A complete OverHaul
actually :o
I appreciate the fact that YOU recognise that Ubuntu/gnome has to keep up
with whats out there Now,
and how can we compete with that.......? Only time will tell.... but the
Majority of the gnome developers are
stuck in the 80's way of thinking..........I myself hope Ubuntu and gnome
prevail.. but i don't see how Gnome will Beat
Kde 4xx in the long run once it becomes fully stable and useable..... Kde
have the balls to put their "resources' where their mouth is.. and do
spectacular... even if it is taking a while.... its almost there. It truley
will give Vista's and Mac's Gui a kick in the Balls
