I am not stopping you from discussing things. I just want you to know 
the reasoning behind some of the GUI style decisions, so you can talk 
from a place of knowledge. After all, you are the one who said this in 
one of your posts:

        > The menus of multiple applications all look the same - only the 
        > bar of the base menu distinguishes them, so with lots of apps open 
        > gets harder and harder to locate which menu goes with which app.

Wow, this just shows me that you haven't even tried the NeXT style GUI 
before commenting on it.

For you info, I find configurable menu styles and themes to be a very 
sensible thing to have.

No, at least have some basic knowledge and exprience of what you are 
talking about (in this case, NeXT style GUI's).

No, but without some knowledge of what you are talking about- it is 
just hot air.

This doesn't even dignify an answer.


If you don't see why, please stay the fuck away from my code.
