Too bad

Pat is a kde user.. we could see for the first time the, in my opinion, horrible/silly desktop ui metaphor finally dropped from a somewhat mainstream Linux distribution or any user oriented OS for that matter. I'm so tired of seeing 'screenshots of Linux' with basic gnome/kde menus and panels and hearing everyone refer to getting users over to using Linux as the desktop initiative (or even worse: they just refer to the X gui as a desktop no matter what). Good to see at least part of my slackware cd purchase went to good use.. even though I've since switched to Archlinux. Slackware's cd sets have nice label art at least.
