What a wonderful statement! I do fully agree on that KDE is too flashy
to be useful. Bluecurve is a wonderful piece of art and usefulness.
Great style and usability. Please, do not make Gnome imitate that techy
style interface where you need to wear shades before you can achieve
anything at all.

Of course, there are things in Gnome that are frustrating, but let's be
optimistic, supportive and helpful about these.

One thing about Gnome that is frustrating is the bad copy/paste or even
drag/drop support. Media integration could be improved. Fonts are still
not as fantastic as they should be. And more things that should be
fixed, but I stop here.

All in all, Gnome is a marvellous environment and would not want to be
forced to use anything else.

Ok, I have to admit that I was shown MacOS X and I was impressed, but
that is probably beyond the scope of this discussion...

Many thanks to Havoc and the people around him. They do a wonderful job.
Let's support them to make Gnome even better.
