Re: Just doesn't look polished

"Of course, a distro's worth is all about how it looks, who cares if it actually functions. We all know that pretty icons make for a great OS right? lol ;) "

Of course pretty icons does not make a functional OS, but a good looking interface DOES matter to a lot of people who have to stare at it all day. Hell, the default GTK skin is enough to make me want to avoid it like the plague ;)

PS - IMHO, it doesn't look THAT bad ... for a Linux distro anyway ;) Hell, I kind of dig the file manager.
