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.

Yeah, whetever you said segetroll, btw, did you read the mailing list? nope? that's what I though.

And btw, application developers doesn't need to care about theming, damn you are ignorant, If I make an application using GTK what would I care about the theme? the application will use whatever theme is using by the DE.

btw, have you seen a XFCE developer complaining about this, or is just you?
