[HIG] Re: [Usability] Re: Decision: instant apply window buttons

Ps, how about doing a "Ok / Cancel" ?

In this scenario, selecting a new background instantly applies it (aka try), pressing 'OK' keeps it, pressing 'Cancel' reverts it to the old state.

This prevents people from getting mouse-wear from having to 'try' all the time, while still having the 'intuitive' ok / cancel.

but in the case of "auto-apply" prefs, if joe suddently click here and there, suddently something happened that scared him, but not sure which part of prefs he touched, 'cancel' or <esc> might help him. it would be better to have 'cancel' or <esc> that undo change it a particular prefs session.

this is based on my early days of comupting experince..

Yeah. This is why I like Calum's proposal to have Try, Cancel (which
undoes everything to where it was before you made changes), and OK.
