Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Just like Eugenia yesterday, I also upgraded my laptop's Ubuntu Feisty installation to Gutsy a few days ago. The upgrade process went completely awry, though, so I was forced to do a fresh install. Not a bad thing, as it gave me the opportunity to take a look at Ubuntu's soon-to-be-released Gutsy Gibbon with GNOME 2.20

I understand your point, but in actual practice you have two major disadvantages when you mix applications using different toolkits:

1. you have to install and keep up to date more stuff

2. you have more stuff to load into memory

and if the distro you're using hasn't put some work into a common theme (which wouldn't be your first choice anyway, probably ...) you'll also have different GUIs on your desktop.

So, I sort of agree with you ... but actually try to use Gnome only apps ;)
