as impressive as animations and other "nice" stuff is - it can get annoying if
you overdo it and don't provide an option to turn it off. the M$ dancing
paperclips are probably the worst example, and i have yet to meet someone who
doesn't say they get on his/her nerves - including computer-illiterate users.

yes, i did love enlightenment. but i *do* want to be the one who decides
whether i want the nice stuff or not, and not be at the mercy of marketing
people and designers.
