Gnome "Theme development is a tedious and difficult task, and for the GTK devs to be so careless in breaking their API at every turn disrespects the many hours people put into making themes for it. [...] I was given to believe that this breakage stems from a Microsoft-like climate of preventing users from customizing their systems, and deliberately breaking the work of others so that your 'brand' is the best. Anytime I hear the word 'brand' being used in Linux, I know something valuable is being poisoned." I find the tone of this one a bit too harsh and overly negative at times, but his point still stands.

Read the article before commenting further.

I did read that sorry article, and if you can read, you will note that GTK is still themeable, you should read that the API for themes is evolving and will settle down, mean while all you need to do is upgrate your theme, but as the anti-GNOME troll you are, you extrapolate everything.
