Okay, what is up with gnome 2.6? Who's arrogance decided I can't change
settings or even colors in gnome? Not all your users are stupid, and even
the "stupid" users might be more than a little upset with this. I highly
doubt many of us want to relearn your entire interface because you made
large UI changes in a _minor_ release.
Anyway, I'm sticking with gnome 2.4 until these issues are resolved. If
they aren't, I'll regretfully switch to something more usable, such as
wmaker or KDE (and I REALLY hate KDE). KDE is the whole reason I
originally switched to gnome; I can't take its constant crash screens when
So, anyway, please stop being arrogant and let your users do what they
want. Who cares if 5% of them choose the wrong colors? There will always
be stupid people in the world.
