Ohh, no definitely not, they need not be so far apart.. i just threw
the thing together quickly with the gimp and didn't move them close
enough to each other, actually i would prefer them closer.
as for your idea about have some sort of icon or elegant image to
replace those tabs on the sides of the panel.. i like it.. if i
remember correctly , the gnome-pilot has a nice little panel icon,
simple and elegant... something of that nature would be a nice
replacement for those tabs.
(hmmm, the ants are getting into my apartment this year, again..
shouldn't leave half drunk pepsi's laying around.. )
concering your idea about the mouse-overs, I like the idea.. for what
its worth though, i dont really have any control over that and how
it's implemented.. unfortunately i am a user, not a hacker.. i have
some programming experience but nearly not enough to work on the level
of some of these developers, hopefully something like this idea will
eventually make it into the development though ;-)
Till Next Time, Farewell Brave, Strong and Proud Gnome users ;-)
