What an amusing little rant on that list. The protagonist (a Mr Ian
Seeks - Seeks Enlightenment by the sound of it), is screaming about how
much he hates Gnome, because he can't right-click on a certain icon. And
thingies are working different and stuff ... boo hoo.

I'm afraid you are not going to approve Roy, but if you haven't already
guessed, I'm sorry to tell you that I am not much of a fan of the old
blue cogwheel, in fact it reminds me rather too much of Teletubbies,
like a certain OS in a similar vein. Certainly KDE can be customised,
but it is it's bloat and Windows-esque aspirations and behaviour model
that puts me off. Give me Gnome, Fluxbox, or better yet, a Bash shell,
but you can shove the cog up your ... pocket. :)

Nothing personal.
