a road to nowhere

I still can't believe what people of GNOME and KDE have done. With GTK 1.x
and KDE 2.x there were only some little adjustments missing, to obtain the
'perfect' desktop, compatible with GNUstep's Windowmaker. They have decided
to follow an endless way instead. I'm temptated of destroying the whole X
system now. The problem with FreeBSD, unlike with Linux, was that Nautilus
1.x didn't work in any way.
Before throwing in the towel, I'll downgrade to KDE 2.x, and I'll wait the
solution for Nautilus.

I thank who will send me a solution to start the Nautilus 1.x, to have at
least a decent desktop for a pair of production workstations, dedicated to
store music files.

I have tried and retried, but the result is always the same: there is no
common style under GTK 2.x and KDE 3.x.

There is no style matching GNUstep, there aren't customizable windowmanagers
any more.

The main proposals are based on the Windows shit.
