Sure, people who have used *nices before are used to this. So? Should
customs stop the world from evolving?

I'm thinking Ubuntu-people are trying to make this software just a little
better, in their opinions. The masses seem to agree too. I'm sure if they
notice that it isn't such a great idea, they'll have the guts to call it off
and make the necessary and appropriate changes. Jumping the gun isn't
advicable in practically anything, except some unique hostage situations. :)
