which is now finally fixed (thanks also to a developer from Pardus who made
a one-line fix to my patch to get it to work instead of crashing)? (In
fact, we have to specifically fix what your GNOME developers break, but
that's another issue.)

All our system config tools are GTK.  The installer is GTK.  Our applications
like gnome-power-manager and NetworkManager and smolt and etc.. are all GTK.
Our work went into GDM to improve login experience.  Our Fast User Switching
is designed for gnome.  I can go on and on.  These aren't bad things, they're
just the way they are.

The network config tools need some work. (Especially for Wireless.) I have been trying to get my bcm4306 chipset wireless to work. The network tools don't see it. (And I have the firmware that I used on FC6 with no problems.) The list of wireless cards in the drop down list seems very old. It needs to be updated to the currently supported list. (As much as wireless is at this point...)
