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.

WTF? Go read the mailing list you ignorant troll

Read what mailing list you utter twit? Theming is a part of GTK, or at least it is supposed to be. It's, you know, a graphical toolkit. The default Gnome theming is something else. That's where these problems are coming from. A toolkit, GTK, is enforcing Gnome preferences on everyone else.

Application developers are whiners. Pure brilliance. Pure ignorance. Troll..... Hilarious.
