I think most people by now know that anyone with a mail address is
speaking as an individual....most/some of us work for Sun *and* GNOME :)

Actually, while you're on this subject.....if anyone who has used CDE in the
past or currently has any ideas on what would be useful to migrate/transition
[insert buzz word] over to the GNOME desktop then send the ideas this way :)
There's a couple of us working on some tools so any brainstorming from other

And no, I refuse to write a CDE switcher applet for GNOME :P
