No, nobody says to go clean-slate and redo everything. That would be madness. What I am saying, is to modify the looks, gnome-panel, nautilus and context menus etc. of Gnome (or the equivelants of KDE) and then create a product that is *different enough*, and yet based and *still compatible* with Gnome/KDE. Think more of what Ximian does for Gnome, but just one step further. API compatibility should be retained, otherwise you lose easy porting of apps.

API and source compatibility should be retained no matter what. It is important to get apps easily.
