Hi all, On the art mailing list there is a debate has been going on about the future directions
of the various ubuntu flavors, in terms of look and feel. Some suggested that the flavors
should be somehow lined up to have a kind of similarish look. Though, these ideas are still
blurry but the kubuntu people have already declared that they will follow their own path,
independent of the ubuntu direction. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KubuntuArtworkParadigm/ I've also argued that making the distros kind of similar would deprive them from developing
their own identity that ultimately would result boredom. I agree very much with the kubuntu
guys that the ubuntu, kubuntu and xubuntu have to develop independently, which doesn't mean
that certain underlying ideas shouldn't be aligned. Distinctness would have beneficial effects
by offering diversity and multiple looks for users.
So far I got positive feedback; I wonder what you guys think. J. Mak
