Actually if you look at the betterdesktop movies where they plant
innocent users behind a relatively default gnome setup, you will
recognize a lot of the 'problems' those people had that slab tries to

However I'm not into "lets do it this way because Windows (and now SuSE) do it this way too".Rejecting concepts because they happen to resemble those find in another OS is the best of reasons.I don't reject the concept in whole. The Control Center part of it looks like a slightly better way of representing gnome's control-center, plus a few other things. How does this scale for KDE, or any other window manager? What I don't like is the slab menu that is pretty much modeled to be the default XP start menu thing. For THAT I haven't seen much useful reasoning as to why it should be used rather than the menu system that we use, of upstream Gnome. This is what feels like copying for copying sake.
