    Thats fine, but should we be ignoring the <17" folks (like me for ex). I
havent worked
on nextstep and only now have entered gnustep, so I havent seen how windows
and menus are
laid out. I cannot comment on that. Guess I shall try and get a complete
gnustep sys working.
problem is that I seem to be having a horrible bandwidth :-(.
