How about making the buttons like RED for a "negative" choice like
no/abort/cancel and GREEN for a "positive" choice like yes or okay. Of course,
this can lead into a while big thing about color psychology.  My personal
opinion is we leave that up to the people in charge of localizing Gnome to
deal with that instead of trying to deal with this on a global scale.

The green/red color is a reasonable suggestion, so long as it's customizable. I for one, would find it pretty ugly if I couldn't change the color of the button, once I've gotten used to the orientation of the buttons. After all, that's what makes themes so nice.

On the other hand, we could always prompt with multiple popups. After you select no/yes, you get another popup that inquires: "are you sure, yes/no", After you answer that one, you get another popup that inquires: "do you have a note from your mother? yes/no"..... :)

I didn't have to buy my radio from a specific company to listen
to FM, why doesn't that apply to the Internet (anymore...)?
