Re: Gnome 2.6: What were you thinking?

If your GNOME 2.4 has a "change colors" control panel it's a different
GNOME 2.4 than mine.

So basically you're saying you'll stay with 2.4 until a feature that 2.4
doesn't even have is "restored." Amusing that a feature you could not
possibly have used (since it isn't there) is worth writing angry email

And we _would_ like to have a control panel to change colors, it's just
that nobody has implemented it. You could be the one to do so.
