Re: Exciting GNOME?


On last week my friend Willian (Willian is a lawyer) look at me using
Evolution and say: "Hey, this is a cool application. Can you install on
my computer?". I have install the Fedora 3 on his computer and he likes
the look of GNOME applications. The BlueCurve theme is nice for end
users and I think that the most big problem of GTK and GNOME is your
default theme... before BlueCurve and Fedora I dont like GTK too.

Another problem is that when you GNOME and open a QT application,
default theme of QT application looks nice but when you use KDE and open
a GTK application then the end users say: "This application is ugly!!

A new default theme for GTK solve some problem but another problem is a
default theme icon for GNOME... I ask some "normal end users" about the
screenshots and all users (100% of 11 users) say me that the GNOME icons
is not cool and needed more colors.
