Re: Exciting GNOME?

Hey guys,

Remember that not all user are technician and "normal end users" like
colors. The KDE themes and icons is very nice, I prefer GNOME but normal
users like a my girlfriend, my sister and my friends like colors.

Ok... somebody say me "hey install another theme, gnome-look theres a
lot of icons and themes". Remember that a normal user dont like to
modify default theme... 

I think that the best way to solve this problem is change default theme
of GTK and GNOME... for technician is easy to cahnge to other "clean"
theme but for end users no. 

"The best way is the better way for users".
