While waiting for XP support....

many pc users dont like the extra gui candy because it slows
down things - or they go for a more compact gui theme...
The simple Win2000 gui works great and it is as simple as it
gets... Ugly? well maybe but not uglier than NeXTStep where it
I just entered a BZ for the missing menu line below the menu
when you create a menu in windows. It's not just the line,
but also the buttons placement too.
The problem is that after you've created your stack in xp
or win2K gui, you have to revisit and change all the controls
that are too close to each other, they look ok in win2K but not
in xp, same with tab-buttons across win and osx for example.
One solution would be to have the appearance manager in Rev
do it's job the way it's supposed to be... wouldn't that seem
like rev's solution to smooth GUI design across platforms in
the first place?
I just have a feeling that as Moft progresses, it's OS is
going to be ever more locked with $$ or DRM and security
holes (MS just still doesn't get it)... So this might boost
the acceptance of linux interfaces...
What then with the gui? GUI Themes are a weak spot imoho in
rev if this is not respected from within... Open a stack in
a themed OS and it probably wont grab the GUI patterns or
sizes... Or will it?
just my 2 cents... I dont mean to be negative, just viewing
the future through a dubious eye ;) For one, i can see right
now that my Windows program's scrollbars are just not the
same as revs windows...
