Gnome "I'm writing to inform you that the release team discussed Drop or Fix Fallback Mode yesterday. We've come to the conclusion that we can't maintain fallback mode in reasonable quality, and are better off dropping it." Gnome-fallback has been my refuge, as I find both Unity and Gnome 3's shell unusable. Yes, we have been warned this would happen. I thought the cost of maintaining gnome-panel would be so low that it might never need to happen. But as it appears, it is deemed necessary. As for me, I'm bound for something Qt, as I am very angry at Gnome for abandoning its 'classic' users.

All the spacing is off on every app ... everything is just a little bit wrong.

That's the kind of response that just makes any discussion on these things go nowhere. 'Spacing is off' and 'everything is just a little bit wrong' is the kind of subjective rubbish we've seen for many years. It just doesn't mean anything.

Not that I'm saying KDE is perfect. It's always tough when you're trying to keep a lot of powerful features in your software rather than cutting them. However, you can't sell software based on its ability to do less I'm afraid, regardless of how 'clean' you think it is.

Back to the subject of the OP, I just don't see what she's describing regarding themes. Downloading themes, then having to install a theme from a file and then installing from a command line in different places? Really? When I access themes from the desktop or KControl it's the same interface that comes up. That's component reuse in action.
