I know what a lot of readers, and there are not very many, are thinking...you are thinking what a noob, this user cutomizes the default desktop and now he thinks the developers should use it as default, how many times have I heard that in noob land.
The answer to that is YES, unless vector has something better hiding away it may be a good idea. the last desktop was mundane and showed little effort. although I liked that it could look like mac or windows fairly easily so can something a little more original. If I wait until the release to say so then I am told I should have mentioned it during bata testing.
If I mention it prior I am insulting the developers ability to generate something outstanding. I imagine any reviewer would love to review something differant in the torturous mundane landscape that is linux desktops.
Although it has the ability to be very unique no one has the pair to do it fearing windows converts may not like it.
The reality is I am wasting my efforts, readers time and my time typing this crap. I like vector but no more sharing and best of luck with the new release.
And just so you know, I am not suggesting my efforts are the end all, I am just willing to put my money where my mouth is and defend it.
as I said before it is likely no one cares about it and I am now converted.
