Orange hits the user eyes. I do not like it, blue is too pale, but at least
orange can call user's atention. I have users that do not see anything,
except if it blinks, is red and beep a lot. You get the idea.
I prefer green... but that is a personal preference. Does the colour be
configurable to match local settings? I am away from Linux machines and I
have not installed latest Gimp yet ("baby users" leave few free time) so I
do not know all this. It will be interesting to be able to select color, in
the same way admin configures XDM or default session.

The helmet Wilber is really cool. And the placement is really better (title
left side, icon right side).

Something like old 256 * 256.

Only legacy hardware... and in the worse one I have it is 800 * 600, 16
bits. I doubt anybody will try to run in 8 bit to do graphics work now.

Not really. But hey! Who read help docs in this world? Experts do not need
them, and newbies do not care... err... umm.. excuse me, I am having serious
problems with some local users here. Excuse me for my aggresiveness, but I
am really angry... you point them to the damn help or man page, and they do
not read. Ohh my god! >:[ Maybe we should forget all about CLI, GUI, 3D GUI
and go for mind reading interfaces, but I doubt they will read anything more
than noise in some user brains.
