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.

RE[10]: Why not use Qt?

It's not so much that I spend all my time looking at the bezel between the monitors, but that I'm switching from "app on left monitor" to "app on right monitor", that when I need to see what's in the systray or access the menu, my eyes are already near the middle. ;)

I actually have 4 monitors, two connected to one station, and two connected to another, with synergy sharing a keyboard/mouse between them (and configured to wrap the mouse cursor around).

I've played around with various configurations for the location of the menu, systray, taskbars, etc, and this is the setup that works best. For me, of course. ;)
