Using a full blown DE and want apps from another DE to look good or want to use apps specifically written for another DE? Expect half of the other DE to be pulled in as a dependency.

Is it broken? File a bug report.

Don't like it? Use ABS and recompile it yourself.

Cant't be bothered? Choose another distro, there are plenty to choose from.
