I don't reject the concept in whole. The Control Center part of it looks like
a slightly better way of representing gnome's control-center, plus a few
other things. How does this scale for KDE, or any other window manager?
Which is why I think this _should_ be a standalone , Gtk app. WIth all
respect to the apperently large number of Gnome guys.
What I don't like is the slab menu that is pretty much modeled to be the
default XP start menu thing.
Hadn't noticed that, will have to look more closely again.
For THAT I haven't seen much useful reasoning
as to why it should be used rather than the menu system that we use, of
upstream Gnome. This is what feels like copying for copying sake.
Once your reason isn't "because it is in Windows" then I understand.
No promises, but I will attempt something in Glade some time this week
and post screenshots.
To be updated...
