How many would be interested in a Metacity theming tutorial?


I am thinking about doing a tutorial on creating Metacity themes as my next project.

I have just about started to actually learn about the nitty-gritty of Metacity themes. If there's enough interest, I'll certainly go ahead with it, following the formats of my previous guides.

Please let me know your thoughts on this.

Thanks.

I'm saying yes because I know for a fact that there are quite a few people out there that would love to create their own themes. I'm just thinking open-minded........

I know there are. I for one, wanted to port my favorite windows theme after switching to Linux but could not find any tutorial which really explained the whole process of creating a Metacity theme.

This was put on the back-burners for about 18 months being caught up with my other guides and such.

Well, here I am back at it, this time with a better understanding of Linux and xml, and trying to learn the ins and outs of Metacity themes.

I would really like to know that there are people out there interested in a guide of this nature before investing the next few months in learning Metacity and putting together the guide.

Reading that reminded me of Skwisgaar Skwigelf from Metalocalypse for some reason....
