 Agree with you here!
Who the hell writes those dumb applets? How the **** little applet can eat whole 5 megs of RAM???? This jsut pisses me off. Abi World eats something around 5
I gueess, those applet writers got their hands growing from the wrong place.


Same thing about Pixmap themes, only crazy people can work in such a slowliness. On my P2-333 I can't afford myself using one of those cool Pixmap themes. So
