Gnome "Theme development is a tedious and difficult task, and for the GTK devs to be so careless in breaking their API at every turn disrespects the many hours people put into making themes for it. [...] I was given to believe that this breakage stems from a Microsoft-like climate of preventing users from customizing their systems, and deliberately breaking the work of others so that your 'brand' is the best. Anytime I hear the word 'brand' being used in Linux, I know something valuable is being poisoned." I find the tone of this one a bit too harsh and overly negative at times, but his point still stands.

I'm a bit overdue for bed but I'll see if I can find time tomorrow morning to pull together some screenshots and links to the resources I'm using.


That would be greatly appreciated, thanks.


Speaking of which, if you ever want to check out my vimrc or plugin load-out, they're up on GitHub and .vimrc contains a reference for most of the keybinds I actually use:

Thanks again. I'd share mine in return, but it is very basic due to the length of time I have been using vim.
