This is because the development of Windows XP's eye candy now resembles that of KDE -- GIMP's user interface just doesn't have enough eye candy to support the novel users of this OS. The solution? Customizable eye candy -- I can turn it on so it looks like XP (or KDE, or a hybrid, or _something_) or I can turn it off so it looks like it does now. That said, I don't know if this is a solution -- it is the opinion of just one person. So far. -- ~Mike - Just my two cents - No man is an island, and no man is unable. _______________________________________________ Gimp-user mailing list Gimpfirstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.xcf.berkeley.edu/mailman/listinfo/gimp-user
