The newest KDE themes look so darn gorgeous that they beat the socks off
anything in Windows, including XP.
I just have to laugh now days when I look at the drab Windows 2000
desktops all around me, and I have this beautiful Linux machine. Want a
Mac? Just make it so... Want a Windows machine, select that theme if
you wish (though I can't imagine why you'd want to).
So many choices with Linux. It's not for the masses. It's for those
who still think. For thinking is needed to make choices. How much we
really dread freedom!
