It's sometimes difficult to remember that GTK+ is an offshoot of The
Gimp when you consider that the whole Gnome environment looks so bland
by default when installed with many distributions.

I agree with a few points in this thread about the KDE menu screenshot
(particularly the relationship between the icon and the text being
broken), but I'd hazard a guess that the menu is not compulsory or even
part of the 'first-installed' KDE3 setup.

That's the point really, provided it's optional, I wouldn't have a
problem with it.  Anything that makes Gnome look more hip & happening -
out of the box - would be welcomed provided the eye-candy is
turn-offable for those who don't want it.
