Multiple tool kits with long term continuity that work well together are a 
free software strength.  I regularly use best of class applications from KDE, 
Gnome, Trinity, Window Maker, and others on E16.  I'm able to share 
information between these programs, on multiple computers, in ways that are 
impossible on non free platforms.  UI and toolset whiplash is something I 
hate and is regularly forced on non free software users.  Those other 
platforms are hardly more consistent and are almost always less functional.  
Free software has given me both beautiful new things and UI continuity with a 
time scale of decades.  Here, have a look,

Please do not call the software I love "ugly" or say that I do not care.  I'm 
going to some effort to keep things stable for myself.  Your goals are better 
than those negative terms.  Talk about things you consider beautiful and tell 
people specific things you consider helpful to people with disabilities.
