Re: Application/System Tools vs System/Administration


I think the Windows capplet should be removed from the main Gnome control-center packages, and spawned off into a GnomeUITweak package that is part of the Fifth Toe or similar.

Call me a nut, but I think the CDDB, Menus & Toolbars, and Multimedia System Selector capplets should as well. I've been using GNOME since before 1.0 and I never use these things, and can't even perceive of a need to. Why are they cluttering up my life?

People who know or care what these capplets do are such a small, hyper-advanced set of users that I think asking them to install a separate package is not a large request.

Sorry - but focus follows mouse is so far from silly that the word loses its meaning in context.

Let me remind everyone that this is a discussion about showing this as
a preferences capplet.
To illustrate my point, I use the following:
 - focus follows mouse
 - double clicking titlebar shades the window
 - I don't have a taskbar anywhere on my desktop (I have a window list
   menu button though, but I rarely use it: I have a big [3x4] number of

   the left side, and general menu on the right—I should probably
   remove the menu one as well, since I rarely use it, and it's
   available with a right-click on the titlebar as well)

To get to all of these, I need to use gconf-editor anyway.  I didn't
even know you could set some of these through a "Windows" capplet.
I'm not yet ready to become your average home user (to use all the
defaults), so I appreciate having these options, but I really don't
care about the "Windows" crapplet.
