Re: The Icon Question

I have the screenshots checked and the statement is simply not true. Apart
from the KDE screenshots with glossy and shreaking icons, most others use a
mixture of "Bluecurve" and "GNOME" icons. What is mor important is that
there is *no* other preferred theme.

What "Bluecurve" has suffered most from is that in its almost 4 years of
existence, a sufficient coverage has never been achieved. This disavantage
would have held for any other theme.

And why do you call the colors faded out? Look e.g. at the "Administration /
Security Level and Firewall" icon. Isn't that colorful? I for my case do not
at all think that "Bluecurve" made my desktop sad. Stock "GNOME" actually
did with its overall olive green color scheme.
Finally, it's no a matter of "killing" or "getting rid of" the current
"Bluecurve" theme. Choice equals freedom - right? - J
