Re: Ubuntu, Toolkits, Precision, and the Future


This discussion is rather ridiculous.

If you an desktop environment built on a single toolkit, install a distro
that ships a vanilla Gnome 3.2 (Evolution, Epiphany, Gnome Shell, Gnome
Office, etc) or KDE 4.8 (KMail, Konqueror, KWin, Caligra, etc).

What you are looking for is already there and, frankly, the result is not
very good. There's a good reason why Canonical ships Firefox, Thunderbird
and LibreOffice instead.

Besides, the actual toolkit, programming language are mere technical
details. Users look at the functionality, appearance, performance and
stability - and changing a toolkit will not magically improve those.
