Fromt he podcast:

"I hate hate hate - I am going to underline the word hate, capitalize 
it, and put little HTML bold tag. I don't have anything else to say 
about it.... the... it lokos like someone took at loko at windows 200 
and thought hmm this is nice but i like the way that windows xp is also 
ugly, so im going to combine the ugliest features of both (laughter in 
background) and I'm going to paint it with a blue brush, but I am going 
to choose the ugliest sky blue color I can find. And that is what it 
looks like to me. It drives me crazy. Because it's not a huge departure 
from what we had, but they managed to modify it in slight ways that took 
something that i thought was good looking and made it so bad I thought 
it was horrible."

Thank you SO MUCH Valent. The feedback from this podcast is SO HELPFUL. 
Not only that, but it really confirms to me that the 100+ hours of my 
PERSONAL time (time I could have spent with my family or friends) that I 
put into it was REALLY WORTH IT. Thank you so much Valent for bringing 
this to my attention, I am now so motivated to put EVEN MORE TIME into 
Fedora 9, because I now see how much my and this teams efforts are 

Thank you Valent, thank you so much for INSISTING that I listen to this
