|Wow, can you be even more of a sexist and a prick?|
DSL could be the greatest linux distro ever, but if it looks like shit, noone will want to use it.
Does it look like shit? How many extra CPU cycles and how much more RAM are you willing to blow on someone trying to get more life out of an older computer just so it's "pretty"? If you know how to make it look better without increasing resource demands, let's hear it.
EDIT: Look at the previous RC thread and measure the complaints versus compliments. (edit2) Here, I'll remind everyone of the previous thread:
Point in original note from Robert: "New low resource background & theme."
meo: "It looks very clean and nice with the new background and style."
andrewb: "What a great look - the best yet - clean & simple. Much better than the black on black of 4.2.5 that I had loaded on my Libretto."
meo (again): "...I must say that the looks of jwm in this cut is so good that I might be persuaded to keep on using it."
ke4nt: "The gradient background in 4.4RC1 is nice. Much better looking/eyepleasing than the 4.3 version. Black on Black gets old after a while....."
Not so much feedback about reducing resources, but that's why it was done that way in the first place. Again, if anyone can reduce default resource demands better than this AND provide a clean and usable interface please speak up.
