The problem is that you have to learn the user some standard way of
getting help every where, right clicking is a pretty good way to hide
information from the user, but in the sameway make it easly avaiable.
That's my suggestion.

But if you strip all execs in gnome you won't have as much fun. Sadly this
is true, since apps still crash unprovoked. To find those bugs is very
hard with stripped execs

This is probably something I got from when I was using the Amiga, people
had their UIs designed in Alpha stage. Cosmetic things really ads to the
feeling, Ex. people liked WinAmp in the begining.

I'm sorry if I hurt anybody, but some applications really look like a
ported 3.11 application. It's the strange extensive use of images, that
does it.
