Good point: what do you want, a XXX OS 100% emulator, or something that
works? If you want an 100% emulator, run original OS. If you want something
that works, Gnome is for you.

I am not against "OS partial emulation": it is perfect to be able to use a
Emacs-like keybindigs, or Windows or Mac or Amiga. The important is that the
behaviour remains the same from app to app, for example: if you have the
option to drag/lock menus, you must be able to do that with every Gnome menu
you find.

Let the user use 4th and so on buttons for programmed tasks.
