What i liked particularly was how it seemed to be so professional in
comparison with others. I'm afraid i didn't like the black and blue of
before but when i changed to Clearlooks and another wallpaper it just
didn't look so neat. Hope the grey remains. [But again each to their
own - many didn't like the Ubuntu brown... i liked it with the Firefox
Walnut theme looked neat together - but now i'm no longer a Ubuntu

Once i've got through this summer i hope to help with xubuntu
development - hopefully with manual writing. I look after my mother
with Alzheimers and have a lot to do while the weather is good but in
autumn i'll have some spare time.
