   Im a KDE and XFCE user and must say I have to agreed with this.
   My sister bought one and while the wifi is a thing of beauty now, the
   audio video components are just horrible to work with.
   I ditched the wonky and ugly Totem and Rhythmbox for VLC and Amarok and
   the useless Pidgin for Kopete because Kopete has joined the 21st century
   and you can use video with it.

   The default fonts are limiting as is the Gnome lack of flexibility but
   when it comes to it, she can IM, browse/email and write letters in .doc
   as well as watch and listen to her shows on the usb key.

The FUD may be the same, but I doubt that is /the/ Rob Enderle.
