Re: why so few themes are shipped with gnome-1.4?

Ack! The pixmap themes are to a large extent horrible, and (bluntly), don't
do anything for Gnome's image as a fast, usable desktop environment.

Crux, Thinice and to a lesser extent Raleigh, are fast, good looking, light
and very usable. They have a great effect on the feeling of the user

Whilst I wouldn't strongly advocate getting rid of the pixmap engine, I
would encourage just about everything else ahead of it. Leave the mess
