Anyone notice Gnome is looking more like OSX?


I think it looks a little more like OSX.

What I meant is, and I'm Gnew to Gnome, is that the new distro of Gnome looks more like OSX, the one I'm using looks a lot like Windows.

RedHat's Gnome and KDE are very similar in look (the Bluecurve theme). All versions of desktops - Gnome, KDE, OSX - look the same (IMO) because they are trying to attract Windows users away from 'the dark side'. This is on the grounds that if users want a particular look on a desktop, the alternative OSes have it.

(Just an opinion, no flames please)

On the other hand, the alternative OSes are customisable and can change their look drastically - which is a good thing - and can look very different to Windows. Take a look at themes on www.kde-look.org or on www.gnome.org (don't know the exact link for Gnome themes, sorry)

ok, I must try gnome 2.4 --- what distribution is the 'friendliest' for installation and running?

I usually prefer Debian, could run Redhat...
